Thanks to our WATAÂ® technology, which has been tried and tested over many years in the field, we can enable communities to produce their own supply of safe drinking water and support social entrepreneurship. We have provided access to safe drinking water for around 15 million people over the past few years.
Antenna, an incubator for social enterprises, particularly in Guinea Conakry
Thanks to local coordination and the integration of various stakeholders, including UNICEF and the Ministry of Health, the project became widely recognized at the national level in 2011, when it was officially recommended to health care facilities. Tinkisso-Antenna was also instrumental in local efforts to combat the Ebola epidemic.
Producing more than 5 million bottles in 2015, Tinkisso-Antenna offers a real solution for producing water disinfectant, releasing enterprises from a dependency on chlorine imports, and making it easier for them to respond quickly to health emergencies.
One of the social objectives of Tinkisso-Antenna is to combat youth unemployment, by offering opportunities to young people: the enterprise employs over 120 people directly, and has a network of 2â€™600 community workers (including around 700 women).
By giving them economic independence, women are empowered and can break the perpetuation of gender inequality. Allowing women to carry out economic activities and create opportunities for paid work is one path toward development.
Our social business partners in Asia, such as PakoSwiss (in Pakistan) are providing in urban and rural water training through to the community, explaining the effect of water diseases to all the community and especially woman and their children.
Social Enterprise TARA (Technology and Action for Rural Advancement) in India and the NGO ECCA (Environmental Camps for Conservation Awareness) in Nepal are also supplying chlorine flasks to the ASHA (women communities) workers or Self Help Groups. They will then deliver and explain the importance of this product for womenâ€™s health during door-to-doors campaigns.
