ONE and Project Maji join forces to provide safe water in Africa


Ocean Network Express (ONE) has partnered with pan-African safe water NGO Project Maji to address the critical issue of access to clean water for rural communities in Ghana and Kenya.

This collaboration was established through ΟΝΕσ subsidiary and regional headquarters Ocean Network Express (Europe) Ltd, with the aim of changing the lives of many people through the installation of multiple solar water points.

The company has financed the implementation of sustainable water solutions in Ghana and Kenya, as well as free water kiosks in rural schools.

In Ghana, ONE sponsored the Maji River Solutions project on the banks of the Volta River, which includes a water pumping and filtration station to provide safe water to three Maji towers located in the communities of Adidokpoe and Afalekpoe.

Separately, ONE has expanded its support to Kenya by funding the establishment of the Maji Plus system, an integrated solar-powered pipeline system that provides safe water to 3,000 people.

This partnership therefore also marks ONE’s commitment to sub-Saharan Africa, with offices in Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire, Nigeria, South Africa and, in April this year, Ocean Networks Kenya Ltd. established.

Jeremy Nixon, CEO of Ocean Network Express, commented: “Access to clean water is a basic human right and through our partnerships we are working to create a positive ripple effect that will extend beyond health benefits to education, income levels and genderareas such as licensing.”
