Mouton Consulting is working with MSABI to help rural Tanzanians

An estimated 780 million people lack access to safe water world-wide, and around 2.5 billion people lack access to basic sanitation. Moreover, improved access to water and sanitation is regarded as one of the most critical steps for the alleviation of poverty and improvement of health in developing countries.

As part of the response to this crisis, MSABI is developing in rural Tanzania, a replicable and expandable model for the implementation of cost-efficient, community-based water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programs. Since 2008, the MSABI NGO has been pioneering progressive and innovative hardware and software systems that create independence, ownership and local WASH service delivery. MSABI acts as capacity building centre and spin-off hub for local sector related businesses and organizations.

Mouton Consulting is very proud to be associated with this organization and also grateful to be able to assist them with web design and business consulting services pro bono. Its important to note that we see socially responsible actions as absoultely necessary parts of modern business and we have adopted a formal policy that treats time spent on pro bono services as equivalent to regular billable hours.

MSABI - Maji Safi Kwa Afya Bora -
translates to Safe Water for Better Health.

The project originated during the 2008 Tanzanian wet season when a prolonged outbreak of cholera and typhoid swept through the Kilombero Valley. It became so bad that there was an emergency cholera camp spewing out of the district hospital into our adjacent neighbourhood. People were drinking from shallow open wells polluted by deep pit latrines. The government had limited capacity in rural regions and large international NGOs were not very effective beyond the reach of the large capital cities.

Today MSABI is a medium sized NGO, implementing WASH interventions in rural Tanzania. Research and Training activities complement the program and result in progressive and innovative development of water, sanitation and hygiene intervention technologies, tools and systems.
