Pump up Water,
Pump up Africa

Bringing clean water to Africa

What we do

Solving Africa's water issues through manufacturing

Sunda Technology Global is a tech company dedicated to using the power of manufacturing to achieve a society where all 700 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa have access to safe water.

VISION

Accomplish access to safe
water
for 700 million
people in rural Sub-
Saharan Africa

MISSION

Building a system of
independent villages
that
does not rely on external
support.

Challenges Facing
Uganda

  • The daily task of
    fetching water
    from distant sources

    In order to access water essential for daily life, children must travel to distant water sources, preventing them from being able to attend school and pursue their studies.

  • Health issues caused
    by unclean water,
    including diarrhea

    Even when they manage to fetch water, many children suffer from diarrhea due to pathogens present in the water, and in the worst cases, this can lead to fatalities.

  • Risks of rape
    and dangers posed
    by wild animals

    During their journeys to collect water, individuals also face the risk of fatal attacks by wild animals or falling victim to rape, leading to unwanted pregnancies.

Solution

In order to establish continuous water charge collection and thus sustainable hand-pump operation, we have built an automated charge collection system that does not rely on “humans” as conventional hand-pump management. Switching payment and management method to mobile money improve the safety of money collection management. Charging according to the usage, increase fairness, and residents can now pay with peace of mind.

Toward the social
implementation of SUNDA
This idea of SUNDA was conceived with Ugandan villagers during my time in Uganda as a volunteer from Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in 2018.
Many people in local villages were having trouble collecting fees to repair their broken hand pumps, and the District Water Office did not know what to do to this issue as a district. Because we developed this product in response to such voices, there are high expectations from the local communities. Also, as the number of installed units is gradually increasing, we have come to realize the importance and responsibility of being involved in the water infrastructure used by the local people. We will do our utmost to expand SUNDA as fast as possible, cooperating with people from around the world.
Recently, we have been working with Japanese engineering companies on the manufacturing part, which is the key to our expansion. Product design that meets local needs must be done by local engineers, but Japanese manufacturing know-how can help us to ensure stable quality. It is not an easy collaboration, but it is finally starting to work out. We are very excited about our journey ahead.
It is not easy at all to conduct manufacturing in Africa and solve Africa's water problems but we believe we can achieve this.
