Technical / Institutional Partners
VIQUA Water Care Solutions (VIQUA) is a company that evolved from a purely for-profit business endeavor into a social business in 2016. It is located in Western Visayas, Philippines. From a company that supplied and installed water treatment equipment, VIQUA took on a more responsive role in terms of providing potable water to the most vulnerable sectors of society. This shift came about when the company’s Primary Founder saw the difficulty of delivering a basic need, specifically water, to people during disasters/calamities.
VIQUA provides equipment that can filter water from varied sources so that water becomes clean, safe, potable at affordable prices. The company and its core management directors constantly innovate, with a focus on the development of indigenous materials that can process turbid and unsafe water so that potable and clean water is made available to all, specially to those who are vulnerable and those who are economically deprived in society.
There is only one thing constant at VIQUA: Innovations, Research and Development and Social Business for the good of the least, the last and the rest of humanity.
Below are VIQUA's innovative products and services.
- The Compact Mobile Hybrid Powered Water Facility that is meant to provide water during emergencies
- The Rolling Water Station that is meant to process raw water in far flung communities where the processed water is stored in a water tank owned by community residents.
- Design and installation of water filter equipment for residential, commercial and industrial use.
- Establishment of Water Social Business
Prior to any innovation and production of a prototype, VIQUA conducts a series of workshops to a chosen site with on focus on the Theory of Change and Human Centered Design. These activities are undertaken so that the innovation process undergoes user/client inputs to make the product suit the needs of the end user. Pivots are done to come up with a product that is not just affordable, it can also be a vehicle towards the establishment of social businesses in communities where incomes should be augmented.Learn More
