GWF intends to design, develop and install purified water and smart power hubs in over 1000 villages and small towns in the developing world over the next five years.
Develop and mentor village-run water enterprises, employing 10 to 12 residents, elevating women to manage these businesses, and turning over full ownership to them after the first three years of successful operation.
Install over 1000 water purification facilities by end of 2026, each processing enough safe water to provide 10,000 people with two liters each day. These will be run as enterprises run by and for the poor, with over 50% to be managed and owned by women. The net revenue will be used to establish the enterprises and pay ongoing operating expensives, and will gainfully employ between 10-12 employees. Further, the revenue will be sufficient enough to also provide for much of the village’s essential social services such as classroom expansion, sanitation needs and even college scholarships. Finally, in those villages where reliable, robust power isn’t provided by a national or regional grid, the village can become a financial partner with GWF to install a smart power grid that can provide renewable electricity generation for the homes, schools and business incubators for the town. Expectations: Annual earned net revenue for each village based on water sales: $180,000 (USD). After satisfying all OpEx, including staff wages, the village has residual income to apply to essential social service needs each year.
