Ocean Network Express (ONE), a global container shipping company, is delighted to announce its partnership with Project Maji, a pan-African safe water NGO, to address the critical issue of clean water access in rural communities in Ghana and Kenya.
This partnership, made through its subsidiary and regional headquarters Ocean Network Express (Europe) Ltd., aims to transform many lives by installing multiple solar-powered water access points, significantly improving health and education prospects.
Recognising the pressing need for clean water and its transformative impact on communities, ONE has funded the implementation of sustainable water solutions in both Ghana and Kenya as well as financing free water kiosks supplying rural schools.
This contribution is set to make an immediate and lasting difference in the lives of those who have long grappled with water borne diseases and unsafe drinking water.
In Ghana, ONE has sponsored the creation of the Project Maji River Solution on the banks of the Volta River, featuring a pumping and filtration station that supplies safe water to three Maji towers spread out across the Adidokpoe and Afalekpoe communities. This positively impacts the lives of over 4500 people in the two rural communities.
Additionally, ONE has extended its support to Kenya by funding the establishment of the Maji Plus system, a comprehensive solar piped system providing safe water for a population of 3000. By facilitating access to clean water, ONE and Project Maji are not only safeguarding the health of individuals but also triggering a positive chain reaction across various aspects of these communities.
