When the water in your village makes your kids sick, where do you turn? If you can't get clean and safe water, how do you thrive?
Our baseline survey found that clean water is a huge need in Bicol. So we are developing solutions: a water purification unit to bring to each household so that they can gather water and filter it for their families. Additionally, we have determined the location of contaminated and uncontaminated water. Turns out no matter how many wells we drill, if the water underneath is not clean, we will not be helping. Because our manufacturing method depends on pure water resources, we are doing the work of finding the clean water and drilling for it. This valuable information can be shared with the community to empower them to dig in the right spots.
