Clean Water Wave

clean drinking water filtered using the CAFE filter

We're a social enterprise that's dedicated to generating entrepreneurship through clean water

We use a micro-franchise model to help establish local social enterprises that sell clean & safe water using our groundbreaking filter – the Clean Aqua For Ever (CAFE) water filter. The CAFE filter is a sustainable, long term solution to provide clean & safe water to rural and peri-urban communities across the world. The micro-franchise model generates jobs, promotes training & skills, and enables communities to access affordable drinking water that meets EU standards.

Our Mission

10 million people accessing clean & safe water in the next 10 years. Our CAFE water treatment system removes parasites & heavy metals, & is the solution for clean drinking water. We’re on a mission to get the clean water wave rolling.
