Field Notes

Thanks to you, this community now has access to clean and safe drinking water. They've also been trained by our local partners on safe hygiene practices and basic maintenance of the BioSand Filter.

There are multiple families, many in the project photos, benefiting from the BioSand Filter at the household level. Our partner worked closely with community members to determine the demand for BioSand Filters. Each family using the filter contributed toward their project's construction -- a small fee, but one that helps instill a sense of personal ownership for the project.
