Filtrons

 

Simple, Affordable, Effective

 

Why do rural Nicaraguans  have trouble getting Filtrons? 

  • cost..............$30

  • 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.

"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!"
