Therefore, in celebration of world water day, WaterKiosk in partnership with DEG and Boreal Light GmbH officially opened the first round of the largest solar water desalination project in Africa on 17 March 2021.

The project is supported via the programme, which DEG implements on behalf of the German ministry for economic cooperation and developments (BMZ).

These solar water desalination systems aim to mitigate the impact of the pandemic by supplying over one million litres of safe drinking water daily in 23 key hospitals and clinics across Kenya.
