Clean & Affordable Water / Mogadishu's Underserved

Clean & Affordable Water
Clean & Affordable Water

Ijaabo supplies clean and affordable water to both the most affluent and most underserved communities in Mogadishu, Somalia. Through a diversified community-based approach to product development and design, more than 50% of Ijaabo’s clients are families displaced by conflict and drought, and urban migrants. They have no access to clean, safe, and affordable drinking water. Ijaabo reaches these customers by partnering with local women’s groups for distribution and developing innovative financing schemes to subsidize the cost of services for orphan and vulnerable households. As such, Ijaabo is an important employer in these communities.
