Our intervention involves digging dip wells for our motorised systems, constructing rain water collection tanks both in 6,000 litre capacity and 10,000 litre capacity for households and institutions such as health centres respectively. These interventions are all driven with one single goal in mind, bringing safe water closer to families.
We construct ferro-cement tanks to increase access to safe and reduce the time spent to collect water at households and selected institutions. This is done especially in areas that receive substantial amount of rainfall through out the year. Tanks at households are meant to be shared among the five households. The households are forced to resort to their initial contaminated sources.
The Sawyer water filtration is a water treatment method which uses membrane Filters composed of tiny “U” shaped micro-tubes that allow water to enter into their core through tiny micro pores on the side walls of the tubes. The pores are so tiny that no bacteria such as E. Coli, cholera, or typhoid can pass through. 1
