waterkiosk foundation

Why waterkiosk?

The waterkiosk foundation is a comparatively small foundation with the advantage that our team consists of highly motivated specialists. We have short decision-making processes, allowing for a lean administration and an efficient implementation of our values.

We are in weekly contact with our team on site and discuss each project personally.

Our foundation boards, project managers and team members regularly travel to Tanzania at their own expense and visit new and existing projects.

In which countries is waterkiosk active?

The waterkiosk foundation started with projects in bangladesh, madagascar (in cooperation with helvetas) and Tanzania.

Due to our very competent and motivated teams in Tanzania, we have decided to focus on the East African country until further notice.
