Support for social entrepreneurship

Siemens Stiftung's financial support for a social entrepreneurial solution delivered big results


The Siemens Stiftung focuses on the use of simple, but significant technical solutions that solve problems in basic services and empower people to improve conditions for their families and communities.

It was with the support of the Siemens Stiftung and the Mombasa Constituency Development Fund that SOS Children’s Villages Mombasa, Kenya, started the innovative IMST WATER Project in 2013.

As a result of the partnership, SOS Children’s Village Mombasa now produces 20,000 litres of bottled water each day, resulting in affordable access to potable water for the whole community, improved health and hygiene, and jobs. This innovative social entrepreneurial solution is also helping SOS Children’s Villages Kenya on its path to becoming financially self-sustainable.
