Here’s how it works:

If you’re interested, please reach out and let us know. Then we can have an initial conversation to discuss which donation or investment options we have, and how the process works. Take some time to look it over and consider your options, and if you’re still interested, we can proceed with the investment or donation. We provide periodic reporting and adopt a collaborative approach to all our investments and donations. Because we’re in this together. 

You might be wondering what the benefits are:

We’re offering you the opportunity to alter the culture of investing. Where your investment in or donation to WaterStarters means you’re contributing to real, community-driven impact. Where the franchisee also has a stake in the project. By moving from aid to trade, we are confident we’ll solve the global challenges around SDGs 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 13 and 17. Our model also enables us to meet client demands and needs.

You can donate or invest. Please see the contact details to reach us.

WaterStarters pools its funding to operate a large portfolio of water schemes and to cover for major repairs and upgrades. Therefore, donating or investing in a specific water scheme or community is not possible.

WaterStarters works with detailed investments and revenue forecasts, which we deem to be financially sound.

Thank you for your interest in changing lives with safe water through your business. Please contact us via our contact details at the bottom of this page.

We aim to return the loan and interest within 4-6 years.

We aim to return between 5-10% interest. However, we are still at the start of our pilot so over time we will have better knowledge on actual returns.

Abstraction of water from boreholes will be done in accordance with Water Resource Authority (WRA) regulations and Acacia Water to prevent over-exploitation of underground aquifers. We also conduct Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) for every new borehole use the Environmental Monitoring and Management Plan (EMMP). This prevents and mitigates potential environmental risks associated with proposed water technologies. Monitoring of ground water should lead to enough water resources to sustain the different ecosystems.

Through our monitoring dashboard we lower the chance of the boreholes running dry by poor management. Real time feedback and early warning systems through app or SMS inform franchisees and WaterStarters in time, thereby preventing downtime.

WaterStarters holds a Public benefit institution (PBI) status and therefore donations should be tax-deductible. This should be verified with the applicable laws of each nation.
