We look back to a good 2022 for Nazava Water Filters. Sales of water filters finally returned to pre-pandemic levels and we sold enough to provide five families with safe drinking water every hour of 2022.
In Indonesia we expanded our school program to another 290 schools, reaching nearly 500 schools in total, impacting 80,000 school children with daily access to safe drinking water. We more than doubled our online sales, opened our new factory and headquarters, and ended the year at a high point by winning the top prize in the Bayer Social Innovation Award!
2022 was our first full year in Kenya. We formed partnerships with four national microfinance institutions (MFIs) to reach low income rural households, developed our sales structure, and received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our customers. In total, we sold more than 4000 filters impacting 20,000 rural Kenyans with safe drinking water.
We also saw our role on the global stage grow. We were invited to speak at numerous conferences around the world including the ASEAN Inclusive Business Summit in Cambodia, the Get in the Ring Global Meet-Up & Impact Fest in the Netherlands, and the East Africa Water Conference in Kenya.
