What We Do
The company deploys innovative and next-level services and systems to provide clean and purified clean water. All living beings are water dependent and over 72% of productive sectors require water, there is no one-fit-all solution when it comes to providing clean water. Water Access Rwanda seeks to be a solution for different segments of the market. The solutions offered are bundled through four different offerings each targeted to a different customer segment. Each of the solutions is complemented with our capacity to conduct geophysical surveys and other feasibility studies.
INUMA creates a borehole-fed micro-grid piped safe water network where purified safe water is available at public points and piped into households for private access. All water is purified through a treatment process, pumped using solar and AC and sold via pre-paid water meters activated through a token. INUMA(tm) points can be made from rehabilitated existing handpumps and create jobs locally in the community.
In a bid to increase rain-water harvesting and ensure all taps in urban households provide safe water, Amazi provides first flush diverter systems and point of entry and point of use filtration systems. With this solution, households, schools, camps, clinics can save on their water bill in the rain season while reducing the amount of run-off water that would otherwise cause flooding. The systems come with a one-year warranty. Filters include in-line filters, table-top, portable and Aquatabs Chlorinators.
Targeted at farmers and off-grid businesses, uhira includes a borehole, a solar pump, a pipeline, elevated storage system and an optional cattle trough or tap system from the tank. This system is offered on credit with 25% down-payment, followed by equal monthly payments for 12 months.
The full company's technical capacities can be re-arranged and bundled up to achieve other project objectives for custom-designed projects ran by NGOs, Carbon Credit Project Developers, government, CSR partnerships, etc. With VOMA projects, we also offer WASH trainings, baseline surveying and M&E aspects through smart surveying tools.
