On Tuesday April 19, 2015, Nested Savings Uganda started an exciting new initiative in partnership with ECOTRUST Uganda.
Through this partnership, we will be distributing Solvatten Solar Safe Water Systems to people in Northwestern Uganda. The highly subsidized (from $100+ to $15 each) water heating and purification device will reduce the burning of charcoal and firewood during cooking and thus contribute to environmental conservation. The device provides safe drinking water to reduce water borne and water related diseases, affords users extra productivity hours since they will no longer have to travel to buy charcoal or firewood, and saves money since users are less likely to incur medical costs associated with prevalent waterborne diseases like Typhoid Fever.
A team from ECOTRUST Uganda has trained the Nested Savings team on how to market and sell the devices.
Our key role in this partnership is to advertise and sell the device to people within our locality. ECOTRUST Uganda supplies the devices, subsidizes the cost, and is the link to the manufacturers of the device.
