There are billions of people around the world who have access to piped water or an improved source (such as a borehole or covered spring) but whose water is undeniably unsafe for human consumption.
Institutions, such as schools, throughout the developing world need to provide drinking water to hundreds of millions of beneficiaries per day but are often unaware of technologies that can be used to treat their water.
For institutions that are familiar with safe water technologies options, the system costs are out of reach for many. Limited suppliers sell on a cash basis and the upfront investment is often too high.
DIARRHEA KILLS 2,195 CHILDREN EVERYDAY. MORE THAN AIDS, MALARIA, AND MEASLES COMBINED.
Our safe drinking water systems work for all schools, even those without electricity or piped water, ensuring that we have a solution for all schools regardless of their unique infrastructure challenges.
THE SOCIAL IMPACT POTENTIAL OF OUR BUSINESS IS FAR REACHING
Improved dignity and health for millions of school children and health facility patients;
Socio-economic advancements which result from reduced absenteeism at school;
Improved gender ratios when safe water is combined with improved sanitation services as menstruation management becomes easier for girls
Financial savings (as boiling and buying bottled water is expensive);
Reduced biomass consumption and a corresponding decrease in indoor air pollution as these safe water systems will replace the need to boil water resulting in large carbon dioxide, methane, carbon monoxide, and particulate matter emission reductions; and
Job creation, particularly for the youth, as they become employed in selling and installing systems.
