Company Description

Basic Water Needs (BWN) is a social enterprise that is committed to providing access to safe drinking water worldwide. We do this by developing, producing and distributing low-cost water filters. Over the last 10 years, BWN has supplied water filters to more than 2,000,000 people worldwide, offering safe and durable drinking water products that are simple to use and last for thousands of liters.

BWN products are affordable and widely available. BWN works through its own network in many parts of the world making sure that all income groups, including the Bottom and Base of the Pyramid (BoP), have access to safe drinking water products. BWN works together with numerous NGOs, Ministries of Health and many other public and private partners in Africa, Asia and Latin America in the fields of HWTS and WASH. BWN is also involved with most Self Supply programs in Eastern and Southern Africa.

With its headquarters based in the Netherlands, its production site in Asia and agents all over the world, BWN meets the needs of its users and stakeholders; making safe drinking water simple, affordable and available. Basic Water Needs’ ultimate goal is to offer safe water in every house.
