World Water Day: Mayim Water Project - creating sustainable water solutions for Central Africa
Mayim Water Project - creating sustainable water solutions for Central Africa
March 11, 2016- Vancouver BC, Point Roberts WA- Investorideas.com, a digital global news source covering leading sectors including renewable energy and water, reports on the Mayim Water Project, creating sustainable water solutions for Central Africa – Sub region, as World Water Day approaches.
This year’s theme for World Water Day #Worldwaterday, being held March 22, 2016 is Better water, better jobs.
The Mayim water project represents a business and investment opportunity, while ensuring better water quality to a large population currently spending too much for water. The 2014 World Bank data estimates a total population in the DRC of 74.87 million and 12 million living in Kinshasa, the capital city. With the average family spending between: $45 to $70 a month for drinking water, Mayim is planning on offering a better and more affordable solution.
Mayim water distribution system was established in 2014 as Esobecorp water management program. Founder, Mr Jeremie Katunda, tells us that ,” Unlike most of Southern African countries facing water crisis, scarcity and drought due to climate change, the Central Africa sub region enjoying plenty of freshwater with constant rains, but water crisis in this area is mainly the consequence of lack of adequate water infrastructure and maintenance policy.”
He points out that “The major challenge facing the sub region in relation to water management is the lack of a leading model and coordination among authorities, stemming from an unclear definition of roles and responsibilities.”
Mayim’s primary products include 750 ml still water bottles and 1 000 litres still water in intermediate bulk containers (IBC).The IBC can be attached to supply a household piping system or just a kitchen faucet. Esobecorp’s services also include water resource management and project management.
Jeremie has big ambitions for market penetration in cities like Kinshasa for Mayim and also notes, “ Sub-saharan Africa water demand is projected to rise by at least 3 per cent annually until the year 2020, a rate about equal to the region's population growth rate. “

About World Water Day http://www.unwater.org/worldwaterday
World Water Day is an international observance and an opportunity to learn more about water related issues, be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference. World Water Day dates back to the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development where an international observance for water was recommended. The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day. It has been held annually since then. Each year, UN-Water — the entity that coordinates the UN’s work on water and sanitation — sets a theme for World Water Day corresponding to a current or future challenge. The engagement campaign is coordinated by one or several of the UN-Water Members with a related mandate.
