Bumi Global Health Consultants – Zambia

Bumi Global Health Consultants was established in 2013. Bumi Global Health Consultants’ vision entails continuous search for new and innovative growth opportunities with the intent of becoming market leaders. Their clientele base extends to all parts of Zambia and includes the private and public health sector, mining sector and water and sanitation sector.

Access to safe drinking water still remains a challenge in some areas in Zambia. Bumi Global Health Consultants together with Basic Water Needs aims to provide communities with the means of accessing safe drinking water at household levels through Basic Water Needs main products: Tulip Siphon Water Filter and Table Top Water Filter. The aim of Bumi Global Health Consultants is to become market leaders in providing households, private and public institutions, NGOs with the filters.



Sustainable World – Ecuador

Sustainable World is a young Social Enterprise created in 2012 to improve the quality of life of low-income households through affordable water technologies. We started in Ecuador, a small country in South America. We studied and selected different water technologies suitable for the country, from solar pumps to water filters. At a very early stage we signed a contract with Basic Water Needs and became BWN Agent in Ecuador.

This encouraged us to invest all our resources in the development of the supply chain of BWN products only. To meet the needs of the most important group of clients we conducted about 800 surveys and designed a tabletop that takes into account the most important findings of the surveys. It took us 10 months to have the capacity to produce and distribute this new tabletop all over the country.

ENEWA is a high quality table top, robust, affordable and now available in all of Ecuador. The Tulip candle filter is the heart of ENEWA. Currently we are investing all our resources in the development of the supply chain of Tulip products not only in Ecuador but also in the neighbouring countries Colombia and Peru. Thanks to the support of Basic Water Needs, in 2014 we will start supplying thousands of households in Ecuador, Peru and Colombia.



Soluciones Comunitarias – Guatemala

Soluciones Comunitarias (SolCom) is a Guatemalan social enterprise that provides sustainable solutions that address long-standing rural, economic, health and educational problems. SolCom is able to provide this through a network of locally trained and supported community advisors/social entrepreneurs and community partners. SolCom implements its unique ‘MicroConsignment Model’ to reach “last mile” communities to help empower and improve the quality of life of the often marginalized families living in remote rural villages.

SolCom has been providing the Tulip Table Top and Tulip water purification systems since 2012 not just in Guatemala, but also in Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, supporting hundreds of households in accessing safe drinking water.
