The Siemens Stiftung and SkyJuice Foundation build fourteen “Safe Water Enterprise” (SWE) kiosks in East Africa over the coming months. Suitable technical components, an entrepreneurial implementation concept, and accompanying training courses will enable a sustainable supply model that is easy to replicate. The new Safe Water Enterprise version is now a compact kiosk solution that occupies about seven square meters of space and can be set up in only a couple of days using prefabricated modules. The SkyHydrant water filter can continue to be used to filter and sell up to 10,000 liters of drinking water per day. A short film provides a clear overview of the concept.
