    We are proud to celebrate 2019 as a year of many business-related steps, hence the title, making business work! Besides registering our business spin-off Max TapWater and further developing our methods for data-collection, you can see that the income of the sanitation entrepreneurs in our project-areas increased fourfold over the last year.

    We reached a total of 1,030,000 people in 2019, and the total amount of children that have been monitored on their growth exceeds 55,500.

We believe in the power of focus. The water and sanitation crisis is the second biggest killer of children under five years old. That’s why we chose WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) & HEALTH for the poorest communities in one region: South Asia.



We integrate extra HEALTH components in our WASH-method to make our work more effective. Furthermore, we cooperate with local partners and ensure sustainability and operational excellence by continuously monitoring and evaluating our work.



We focus on impact maximization and a change of habits in the long run. We are only satisfied when a maximum of children’s lives are saved with a minimum of resources. Or: when we get MAX value for our money.

Our impact

Safe water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) are essential elements of our approach to provide a healthy start in life. To create the biggest impact, we developed our own Max Nutri-WASH approach over the years: an integrated approach of WASH and HEALTH components, like safe motherhood and nutrition.
