IRIBA Tap&Drink “Safe Drinking Water for Job Creation”


Safe drinking water is a luxury that most low-income Africans cannot afford. Worldwide, millions of school days are lost each year due to water-related illnesses in school children. Additionally, disposable plastic water bottles are what most people use for water packaging which greatly harms our environment. IRIBA Tap&Drink innovation is a solution that exists to provide affordable and reliable safe drinking water to low-income people in urban communities and in schools while promoting reusable water containers to protect our environment. The water ATMs installed in urban suburbs are managed by youth and women through a franchise model, hence creating decent jobs to eradicate poverty.
