Access to Water Equals Healthier and Better Educated Children
Without access, children spend more time collecting water and less time in school. Clean water means less chance of spreading diseases that are easily preventable with safe water.
Our Solution is Simply Effective
Our approach allows us to create sustainable access to water without adding complexity and maintenance. A simple water pump provides access to clean, safe water. It’s refreshing.
Knowledge and Sustainability
We have teams in Africa that are trained on Biosand Filters (BSF). We made them and deliver them to villages. Training is always the key to a long lasting filter. 1 BSF can provide clean drinking water to a family of 10 for the rest of their lives with proper maintenance. The cost to make 1 filter is about $100 USD, so $10 can give someone clean water for their lifetime.
