In Mpigi, Uganda almost all rural households fetch water from standing and polluted sources, and then leave it untreated. Currently, only 1% boil their water or treat it otherwise. As a result, illness is widespread, preventing children from attending school and adults from working or caring for their families.
Our locally produced water filters remove impurities and leave once-polluted water safe and clean. The clay filters are easy to use and transport and are very inexpensive. In comparison to using disposable water bottles or boiling water on a charcoal stove, our filters also use much less energy and contribute less to environmental degradation.
The water filters will provide clean water to hundreds of people in rural communities, allowing them to be healthy and productive members of their families and villages.
