Rural Africa Water Development Project (RAWDP) is a leading African non-profit environmental pro-poor organization that believes that extreme poverty can be eradicated in Africa only by breaking the traditional development model.

We partner with a coterie of public, private and community groups to create shared value for the voiceless, disadvantaged and underserved people in economically deprived rural areas using social marketing and context-specific innovative business models to deliver interventions in water, sanitation, nutrition, agriculture, climate change and environmental management. Together with our partners, we develop and test breakthrough concepts that actually have the potential to go to scale and make it easier for people in Africa to lead healthier lives.

Our Objective

  1. Improve access to adequate clean water supplies, sanitation and hygiene
  2. Diffuse climate change adaptation and mitigation best practices/innovations
  3. Bolster food and nutrition security through climate smart agriculture ventures
  4. Enhance environmental management through advocacy, research and interventions

Our work approach

We offer an adaptive, albeit an alternate view of how to attain the Sustainable Development Goals in rural communities in Africa especially the water, sanitation, nutrition, agriculture, climate change and environmental management goals.

Our solutions are unique because we continuously create community engagement strategies that are as robust as the data-driven solution we offer.
