An acceleration program for enterprises in the Malian WASH sector

The Dji Ni Sanya (‘water and sanitation’ in the local Bamanankan language) project is an accelerator program aiming to strengthen about 10 SMEs in the Water and Sanitation Sector in Mali. The program, funded and co-created by Aqua for All and executed in partnership between Impact Hub Bamako, Crosswise Works and IRC will run until May 2023 and will deliver intensive training and coaching on four levels: entrepreneurship, market development, operational management and technical support. Tailor-made programs are used to strengthen the SMEs and increase their readiness for (commercial) investments
