Why a Social Enterprise?

The funding landscape in Malawi, and globally, is highly competitive and laden with donor fatigue. It is getting tougher for start-up non-profits, like ours, to find the money to do the important stuff we want to do. But where there is a challenge, there is an opportunity to innovate. Thats why we have created BASEflow Services (a commercial company registered under the number MBRS1056665 in the Malawi Business Registration Database), which will provide a portfolio of services to Malawi’s water sector, and the general public at large, as part of diversifying our income base. My vision for these services is not to make a profit, which will go in shareholders' pockets, but to fully – 100% - cover BASEflow’s overhead costs. This will reduce the burden of overheads on future proposal budgets for our non-profit work so that every donor penny goes directly to the rural communities who needs it most. Can you imagine 'an overhead-free' proposal budget? We do!

Do you want a borehole that lasts? 62% of Malawi ‘s population depends on groundwater for drinking water and small scale agriculture/irrigation. The primary method for accessing groundwater is through mechanized borehole drilling. However, between 23%-31% of handpump-fitted boreholes are not working at any one time due to poor construction or installation quality. The result of this: boreholes aren’t deep enough, wells dry up when they shouldn’t, water is of the poorest quality or water is
wasted. We want to change that! BASEflow is offering a package of technical services to ensure that boreholes are drilled to the required standards to ensure sustainable water supply and value for money for investors, funders and/or organizations.
