Guinness and Wateraid Partner for Solar-Powered Water Facility in Nigeria

In a renewed bid to deepen health and sanitation practices, Nigeria’s only total alcohol beverage company, Guinness Nigeria Plc and WaterAid Nigeria, have partnered to construct two solar-powered water facilities in Gwam, Ningi Local Government Area of Bauchi State.

The Guinness Nigeria/WaterAid Gwam water facility, which was formally unveiled at a colourful ceremony, is one of two major water schemes which the brewing giant has delivered this year in collaboration with its international Non-Governmental Organisation partners, and the 34th site for the Guinness Nigeria, ‘Water of Life’ initiative in Nigeria.

The Gwam water scheme, which comprises two solar-powered boreholes and two blocks of toilets, will benefit about 20,000 people.
