Swiss Contribution

SFW is a socially responsible, private limited company which has extensive experience in project management and water treatment. SFW has developed a solution for decentralized and low-cost clean drinking water production, based on solar energy. Following a first pilot project co-financed by REPIC, SFW is already in the multiplication phase in Senegal.

Description

In various regions of Bolivia, the population’s water supply is insufficient. In the urban zone of the Altiplano, for example, more than 60% of the inhabitants have no access to clean drinking water.

The project aims for sustainable drinking water supply improvement by:

  •  Local drinking water production and the construction of seven water kiosks;
  •  Development of a locally adapted business model; and
  •  Training and support of local partners (technology and business development).
