Our Track Record & Impact

Since 2005, BushProof has impacted the lives of roughly 1.5 million individual people through a variety of products and services. Each of these products has a different useful life. For instance, a village borehole with hand pump may last 8 years, whereas a simple family handwashing device might wear out in just 12 months. Recalculated to a single person served for one year with a safe water or sanitation intervention, our accomplishment can also be expressed as 4.4 million people impacted.

Our ability to deliver quality and innovation has been internationally recognized by a growing number of international clients and partner organizations. In 2005, we were especially honored to receive the prestigious World Bank global Development Marketplace award. Since then we have helped our clients achieve the following outputs (last update – May 2016):
