Tanzania Filter Project

COUNTRY: Tanzania

OVERVIEW: 15 million people in Tanzania live off of less than $1 a day. Most people living there die before they reach 50 years old. A huge part of the population is forced to use contaminated rivers as a water source, leading to a massive amount of water-borne disease. Our partners in Tanzania are distributing BioSand filters to affected villages every month to attempt to meet the need for clean water.

IMPACT: Per Filter: 10+ Lives

PROJECT COST: $100 Per Filter

OUR PARTNER: SON International

WATER METHOD USED: BioSand Filters
