We are a social enterprise offering impact-driven products to create life-changing environmental and social benefits for African households. Our business model combines commercial sales and carbon projects to maximize our reach and impact.
We are the biggest manufacturer of ceramic water filters in Africa, producing a convenient and affordable solution using locally sourced materials. We partner with other companies to sell and distribute other products such as improved cookstoves. Our carbon projects allow us to support communities with limited purchase power to access our products, while reducing carbon emissions and helping to fight climate change. We have been registering carbon credits from the gold standard since 2019.
We have carbon projects across Uganda and Rwanda, offering Purifaaya ceramic water filter and improved cookstoves to households with limited financial means. Explore some of our projects below.
