Innovation: Africa (iA), a US-based non-profit organisation, and Bayport Management Ltd, a multinational financial services provider with a strong presence in Tanzania, have announced a partnership to help communities across Africa to improve their living conditions through access to clean water and lighting.

Partnership launched to improve access to clean water

iA has already implemented 18 solar systems in Tanzania, 16 of them powering schools and medical clinics in the Bagamoyo and Chalinze regions. Now, with the support of Bayport’s network in Dodoma, iA’s work in the country will be expanded.

Through the provision of a vehicle and other logistical support, Bayport Tanzania has enabled iA to start on a project in the Dodoma region of Tanzania to install a solar system at the Bumbuta Health Centre, as well as a pump system to supply Iyoli village with clean water. iA plans to complete five water projects and two solar projects in Dodoma over the next few months.

“The partnership with iA is a good fit for us. Both our organisations are employing technology and innovation to give people in emerging markets access to the means to improve their lives and build a more secure future,” says Stuart Stone, joint CEO of Bayport.

“Bayport’s support enables us to offer solutions to remote villages in Tanzania, which allow communities to uplift themselves from extreme poverty and provide the tools to be independent,” says Sivan Ya’ari, Founder and CEO of Innovation: Africa. “We are extremely grateful to partner with Bayport and look forward to the evolution of this fruitful collaboration.”

iA’s mission is to bring Israeli solar, water and agricultural technologies to rural African villages. Its goal is to reach 1000 villages, impacting six million people, over the next seven years. To date, it has completed over 200 solar installations bringing light, access to clean water, improved education, refrigeration for vaccines and medicines, and proper nutrition and food security to over a million people in remote villages in Uganda, Malawi, Tanzania, Ethiopia, South Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal and Cameroon.

Bayport is a provider of unsecured credit, insurance and retail banking services to customers in emerging markets. It currently serves more than 600 000 customers in seven African countries and two in Latin America. The communities Bayport serves overlap with iA’s areas of operation in Uganda, Tanzania and South Africa.
