Rwandan Female Entrepreneur on Course to Raise $490,000 in Funding

By Donah Mbabazi

It is estimated that over 400 million Africans, who live mainly in rural areas are without clean water.

In order to help bridge this gap, Water Access Rwanda- a social enterprise committed to eradicating water scarcity by providing appropriate technologies for durable access to water, is on a mission to raise more capital with a goal of covering 12 countries by 2030.

With 70,000 serviced daily via its safe water mini-grids, WARwanda is setting high ambitions to service over 30 million people in the next 10 years and create over 13,000 jobs, greatly multiplying its current reach.
