Simple, Affordable, Effective
Why do rural Nicaraguans have trouble getting Filtrons?
access.........2 hour drive, no car
knowledge..seldom used in rural areas
What we do:
subsidize 2/3 of the cost
bring them to El Salto and Waswali
provide community based training
return to collect 1/3 of the cost
utilize payments to buy more Filtrons
From 2014-2017, we delivered over 200 Filtrons to El Salto, Waswali, and La tejerina, Nicaragua, reaching over 1200 residents. We will continue to provide Filtrons as needed.
Quotes from Waswali and El Salto...
"The water tastes good and the ceramic keeps it cool."
"My children have gained weight. They no longer have diarrhea."
"We drink less coffee and soda now that the water tastes good."
"Everyone's health has improved!"
