A society where everyone has access to safe drinking water.
To improve the standard of living of communities in remote rural villages, peri-urban and urban informal human settlement areas through improved health, by providing access to safe drinking water.
Maji Zima is a Kenyan registered not for Profit Company that promotes access to safe drinking water in rural, peri-urban and urban informal human settlement areas in Kenya through the use of modern and improved Water Filters.
Our work has helped these communities directly by providing information about water borne diseases, and training community members to use the Water Filters, giving them the means to improve their health and therefore their lives.
We have worked in Kenya as a not for profit company since 2014 as a company limited by guarantee and not having a share capital under the Company's ACT CAP 486 with registration number CPR/2013/115938 and has since been donating Water Filters to the needy communities in Homabay, Siaya and Nairobi Counties to promote sustainable access to safe drinking water.
To improve the health and well-being of communities by giving them the means to prevent consumption of biologically contaminated water.
We have set up a premise in Emakoko, Kajiado County, where we assemble our water filters using locally available hardware materials and labour hence creating local employment opportunities in a country with more than 40% unemployment rate.
Since its registration in the year 2014, Maji Zima has benefited 100 households and over 30,000 other community members in Kiambiu slum; 240 households, 600 children and 1000 other community members in Mbita; 25 households and 7,000 other community members in Siaya County.
Currently; Maji Zima is active in Kajiado County where it has successfully tested its newly developed MS-MZ gravity-fed water filters through a pilot scheme at Africa Inland ChurchDiguna, Nkaimurunya Primary School and Beacon of Hope Clinic.
Our project target education institutions, health facilities and religious institutions that have water supply but lack adequate means to make their water safe for human consumption.
