The Access to Water Foundation (A2W) aims to provide safe drinking water in developing countries and create jobs in local communities. The foundation is currently running water kiosk projects in certain parts of Sénégal and Bolivia, where there is currently a lack of access to safe drinking water.

3 Better Shelter RHUs have been evaluated in the Kédougou region in Senegal – 3 machines in 1 unit in Kédougou City; 1 in Mako and 1 in Bentako.

A2W informed that the Better Shelter Relief Housing Unit (RHU) is suitable for the projects it carries out as its size can accommodate all the equipment, and is easily transportable.
