Coporate Social Responsibilities

"Mobile.Water" organization-a subsidiary of Retail Development & Investment Co. Ltd is set up primarily to assist address water and sanitation crises prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa. Today, over 150Million people in the region lack access to clean water and sanitation and over two billion, globally. For decades, several governments, non-governmental and private sector organizations have attempted tirelessly to tackle this escalating problem. Most attempts though well intentioned, either fail to penetrate to the communities in need or when they do, become abandoned after a few months due to lack of maintenance.

This challenge has motivated RDIC to invest in a vehicle- mobile.Water that will come up with a sustainable business model which would tackle this problem at the right scale with a view to delivering water to at least one hundred million (100,000,000) people within the next five (5) years. Today mobile.Water is partnering with Government agencies, NGO’s and the mobile operators in order to deliver this initiative either as corporate social responsibility or for business purposes. In summary, mobile.Water is a demand driven, scalable and self-sustaining solution for developing countries with potential to drive access to microfinance and mobile banking for communities living below or close to the poverty line.
