WSV is a UK social enterprise. Our mission is to ensure people in communities have long-term access to affordable products and services with the dignity and empowerment of consumers and entrepreneurs, as opposed to beneficiaries.

We do this by developing micro-business solutions that tackle social problems. Once proven, we brand and package them into a “Business in a Box”; which we sell to NGOs to implement in the communities they work in, with our continuous support and improvements - a social franchise.

Our portfolio of 3 social franchises provides access to reusable sanitary pads and education, converts human waste into fertilisers to construct toilets in rural areas, and provides access to solar products and power to those unable to purchase solar products.

WSV also offer a range of support services to organisations looking to develop their own social enterprises.
