As Ghana mark the World Water Day celebration, project Maji is assisting deprived communities by providing good drinking water at no cost to underserved communities in Ghana.

Project Maji, a non - for -profit foundation, was established in the year 2015 by Sunil Lalvani focusing on creating sustainable access to safe drinking water in rural communities, last week opened its ninth site in Ghana.

The founder and Chief Executive officer (CEO) of the Project Maji, Sunil Lalva said the project has provided over 15,000 Ghanaians nationwide access to safe drinking water.
Project Maji was quickly becoming a leader in the water hygiene and sanitation sector, said Sunil Lalvani.

"I originally set out to provide one community safe water through Binatone's CSR department in 2014, however I continued to grow and expand to more communities and in 2015, Project Maji was founded", he said.

Project Maji designed and developed a first of its kind a solar powered water kioks pumping system. Its fit-for-purpose design is ideally suited for development in rural communities and is designed to work reliably with almost no maintenance in the harshest environments and minimal damage to the ecosystem. 

"He stated scarcity of water is one of the world's problems affecting more than 2.1 billion people globally. Approximately 3 in 10 people worldwide lack access to safe, readily available water at home. Access to clean water continues to cause illness and stifle growth in emerging countries. While Ghana has made progress, many communities still do not have access to safe drinking water.

In 1992 the World Water Day was inaugurated by the United Nations, as a day for the international community to learn more about water related issues and be inspired to take action. This year's focus is on reducing water pollution, floods and droughts.
