Together with our partner SPOUTS of Water, we aim to have a sustainable impact throughout the following three dimensions:
Implementing Water Filters: The Purifaaya XL, designed for institutions, contains 65 litres and includes a stand. We can use $83 to cover the cost of providing clean water to a classroom of up to 50 students, which will expand our impact in the local community and bring the mindset of using clean water to more people.
Raising Awareness: Through our diverse background, we aim to raise awareness within the local community about the health issues related to unclean drinking water. We also want to conduct training during our on-site work time beneficiaries to ensure the proper usage and maintenance of the water filters.
Financial Stability: By providing ceramic purifiers, we reduce burned wood from domestic consumption by 2.0 tons of wood/filter/year. By utilizing the environmental impact through the sale of carbon credits we aim to make the project self-sufficient.
