Community-centered Design

 

A Trusted Brand

Our brand in Ghana, H20ME!, stands for quality, reliability and affordability. We work with community leaders and local governments to establish trust in our services, and regularly survey station operators and community members to measure satisfaction with service and taste.
 

Piped Connections

Our piped-connection program provides households, schools, health clinics, and businesses with convenient access to safe water.
 

Digital Operating Platform

Through our integrated operating platform, we improve efficiency for our station operators and promote digital payment technologies. Digital transactions allow for more security and financial planning, while creating a feedback loop with our customers so we can improve service delivery.

From a Community Member
  • Patients, including pregnant women, had to bring their own water to be treated properly. That made everything more difficult. This piped safe water connection has transformed our ability to treat patients properly.”

Catalyzing the Sector

National Leadership

We engage with local and national authorities to support the development of a financial and regulatory landscape that accelerates progress toward universal access to safe water. Our forums and workshops are informed by insights from market assessments, policy research, and a multi-sector working group, which unites members with diverse expertise and perspectives from across the national water sector. Since 2012, Safe Water Network has hosted annual Ghana Beyond the Pipe Forums to identify and implement actionable solutions for growing safe water enterprises.
