Kenya Refugee Alliance
The Grundfos Foundation pledges 59m DKK (USD 8.7 million) to a pilot flagship program in Kenya focusing on creating pathways for refugee inclusion to promote lasting solutions. This will be in conjunction with the already progressive approach taken by the Government of Kenya, including the newly adopted Refugee Act.
In the wake of a natural disaster, the Foundation can quickly reach out via our partners to help the victims with emergency safe water supplies. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine, the Foundation has expanded its donations to emergencies.
As a revolving fund mechanism, Project Flow invests in the capital expenditure, design, installation and ongoing maintenance of solar systems for water pumps.
100 pumps for 100 villages
In most safe water projects, a development NGO will buy in a technical solution through a subcontractor, but in India, we’ve turned the relationship upside down as we work directly with a technology provider.
World Water Week Communications Initiative
To build public awareness, ramp up pressure on decision-makers and foster behaviour change that supports climate goals, we need effective communication. But many don’t have the necessary tools. And it’s not as simple as it sounds.

Water Safe Cities
With funding from the Grundfos Foundation, the C40 network (96 global megacities committed to fighting climate change) will develop state-of-the-art research on and solutions to urban water-related risks, helping cities adapt to the impacts of climate change and move towards a sustainable and water-resilient future.
Host communities in Western Tanzania
Nyarugusu Refugee Camp encompasses a huge area in Western Tanzania. All around it, smaller host communities are scattered. Inside the camp, you find all sorts of provisions that the host communities don’t necessarily have access to. With this project, we seek to address some of the political discussions that follow when international aid and resources pass through poor communities to be distributed within the camp.
Water for pastoralist communities in Turkana
Together with Practical Action, we will help 72,000 people in pastoralist communities in north west Kenya access drinking water for themselves and for their livestock. The programme will also strengthen water governance and management systems for rural solar-powered water systems, including already existing Practical Action projects.
Southeast Asia Clean Water Initiative
In Indonesia, the Foundation has worked with Water Mission since 2010 to reach out to very isolated communities.
