In the past decade, more people around the world have died from waterborne illnesses than from all wars combined. The toll is greatest among children and families. Lack of access to clean water reduces community productivity, renders education efforts ineffective, and strains already inadequate health care resources. Facing constant sickness and threat, families cannot plan to improve their lives. 

Recurring donations allow us to build a budget to sustain the production of water filtration systems to areas in the greatest need. Individuals, civic organizations, and faith groups all play a critical part in funding this outreach.


We work with communities to explore approaches to rainwater catchment, hygiene stations, soap making, spring and water source protection, and simple pump repair.


By teaching people to build and install BioSand Water Filters, combined with community sanitation and hygiene education, we can reduce and ultimately remove the threat of cholera, typhoid, bacterial dysentery, Rotavirus, hepatitis A, cryptosporidiosis, and other waterborne illnesses.
