Our vision: There will come a day when no one has to worry about drinking water anymore.

Brineys is committed to ensuring that everyone has physical and economic access to a reliable and healthy drinking water source. This so that people are able to lead a healthy, happy and independent life.

Our mission: Changing the way water scarcity is solved.

Brineys does it differently. In addition to producing drinking water, we also make use of the salt present in seawater. The water is distributed to people who need it. The salt is sold as fair-trade sea salt of high quality. The proceeds from selling sea salt are fully used to produce drinking water. With this business model, Brineys can reduce water scarcity and stimulate the local economy, without depending on donations and funds.

STEi Foundation
John Agbo Ogbodo (MSc Natural Resource Management 2013)

I bring you warm greetings from STEi Foundation, a young and promising Pan African Nonprofit Organization.

No doubt, natural resources management (NRM) stands for a  sustainable use of materials that come from nature (i.e. land, forest, wildlife, wetland/watersheds, etc.) towards optimizing their economic, social and cultural values for both present and future human generations. 

We at STEi Foundation are hopeful that, if a natural resource such as a tropical forest (for example) , is used in a sustainable manner, the resource can supply the critical raw materials that are needed to grow any African country’s economy, protect biodiversity, conserve wetland/watershed, bring food security to communities and boost community livelihoods.

It is consequent upon the foregoing that, STEi Foundation is established to contribute to greening the environment and empowering the women and young people in rural Africa.  This is our overall objective. The outcomes from the aforementioned goal will contribute to supporting  economically  viable, socially acceptable and ecologically sound natural resources conservation in Africa.
