A social enterprise organization, African Boreholes Initiative (ABI) was founded and registered in Kenya in 2005.
We believe that empowering communities to apply appropriate technology leads to poverty reduction. Our goal for water is to ensure communities have the capacity to develop, operate and maintain their water sources in a sustainable way. Our innovative technologies and professional services have a rapid and widespread application. Our technologies work, are durable and affordable. Delivered rapidly, this guarantees maximum impact where it is needed most. African Boreholes Initiative believes that economic and human development is more sustainable when projects and products are commercially viable. Hence our focus on ‘social enterprises’ . This happens when markets are created for products that are manufactured or grown by low income households or groups. We are committed to re-investing a percentage of profits into other social enterprises.
