OUR MODEL

Shishir utilizes a micro-franchising model where a local youth runs the micro production centre and sells drinking water for USD 0.006 per liter.

IMPACT

WE ASPIRE TO ENSURE CLEAN DRINKING WATER FOR OUR COMMUNITIES

Shishir Water involves the use of the UV LED Water Cleaning Technology orginally developed by Watersprint AB, a Swedish company, to avail clean potable water to the poor population of certain contamination affected areas of Bangladesh. The very first Shishir Water plant in Mymensing utilizes the surface water from river Bramhaputra.

We are currently ensuring sustainable supply of safe water for consumption for more than 2000 people and we have already created 6 jobs. We believe access to drinking water is a basic human rights and we want to ensure that our communities receive what they deserve. Shishir addresses Global Goals no 06 and addresses gender equality because women are prone to even greater risks related to hygiene dependent on water.

OUR APPROACH

HOW WE DO IT

A Smart Way To End The Water Crisis

Today 1 in 5 people are in need of access to safe drinking water in Bangladesh. It’s a big crisis! But if we all work together we can turn this crisis into an opportunity. Access to safe drinking water can improve health and well being of our communities, bring kids to school and create work opportunities.

We aspire to change that situation by empowering young people from the needy communities, building sustainable water projects and ensuring access to clean drinking water.

Unique Technology

Shishir MPC’s use worlds first UV-LED water cleaning solution produced by Watersprint AB, Sweden.

Micro Franchising Model

Shishir works with an innovative micro franchising model where the franchisee is supported with access to capital other than technology, strategy, legal and marketing support.

Community Driven

Shishir MPC’s are built within needy communities entirely based on human centered design approach and projects are ideally operated by someone from the community.

Web Interface

Each MPC has real time monitoring alarm, maintenance and statistics online and alarms via SMS and email, available via mobile phone, tablet or computer.

Affordable Price

Drinking water is delivered at rural households in a 20 liter jar for consumption which costs USD 0.006 per liter.

Sustainable Business

Shishir has a unique franchising model which ensures financial sustainability for the company and the franchisees.

World's First UV LED Water Cleaning Solution

ENERGY EFFICIENT & SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION

With a new, unique and efficient technology Shishir eliminates bacteria and viruses from river water and makes it drinkable. Our water maintains WHO standards.

Promoting Entrepreneurship

EMPOWERING YOUNG PEOPLE

Shishir promotes entrepreneurship and involves a micro-franchising model. One rural youth from the needy community franchises our model and produces drinking water using our technology and serves the local community at the determined price. We take care of all the initial investments because we believe one more social business is one step closer to end poverty.
