What We Do


Jibu’s Goals

  1. Provide lasting access to affordable drinking water for everyone.

  2. Build a network of locally-owned franchise businesses in East Africa and beyond.

  3. Peer-partner with emerging market entrepreneurs to forge a more effective co-investment model.

  4. Leverage our water distribution network as a platform to provide other essential products and services.

Jibu has launched many successful franchisees in Africa serving thousands of customers on a daily basis in Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, and soon Zimbabwe and Tanzania. These numbers grow every month.


While drinking water is our immediate focus, our ultimate goal is to launch a network of independent social entrepreneurs who, with high visibility retail storefronts and proven business acumen, are poised to revolutionize the African market and pave the way for developed world resources to become more effectively deployed in emerging markets.

Jibu is a for-profit company that prioritizes impact-maximization. We integrate the resources and expertise of the private and public sector, incorporating best practices and new ideas from whomever is doing it best while, in turn, maintaining an open source environment where Jibu also shares ideas, successes and lessons learned. Our hybrid approach stimulates responsible economic growth and independence, while providing those in need with safe drinking water and other life-improving products.
