Boreal Light: Transforming Lives Through Clean Water Innovations

In the heart of Sub-Saharan Africa, where two-thirds of the land is arid or semiarid, over 300 million people face severe water shortages, struggling with less than 1000m3 of water per year each. But this scarcity isn't due to a lack of water—it's a shortage of investments in resources and capacity. Millions collect water from risky sources, sometimes far from home. Boreal Light's Water Kiosks, powered by innovation, rewrite this narrative. Using brackish and sea water, they create clean, hygienic water, overcoming access challenges and scarcity. Wasini Island, near Tanzania, saw the first Water Kiosk. No longer importing costly water, the kiosk also generated jobs and 5,000 liters of clean water daily. And this was only the beginning! Now, Boreal Light has expanded Water Kiosks across East Africa and ventured into the Middle East, with upcoming projections in Latin America and Ukraine. Together, these kiosks produce over 1M liters of water daily. Just as in Wasini, Boreal Light continues to bring health, quench thirst, and improve lives around the world! 

We Achieve This in Cooperation
