Ghana Water Enterprise Trust | Structuring for Growth and Sustainability
By: Safe Water Network
The Trust enables the expansion of small water enterprises that meet safe, affordable, and reliable access standards, and also enables the necessary monitoring and controls to achieve it. This furthers the UN’s Sustainability Development Goal (SDG 6.1) to provide safe water access to all.
The Trust addresses a critical barrier to scale by providing a means for investment by a diverse group of funders, including donors, government, development agencies, and the private sector, to meet the capital requirements (estimated to be ~$60 million1 ) to provide safe water access to 1,000 communities, serving 3.2 million people in peri-urban and small towns in Ghana.
