Puri Garden / Water purifier (Project)

Puri Garden
Puri Garden

Transforming contaminated water into clean and drinkable water has been a goal for many, especially those in Africa. Arid and vast continent where natural sources are hardly available to people, Africa has a village like Ganvie, the place surrounded by lake Cotonou. Even though water itself is accessible to people who live on water, it’s not available to them because of high metal pollution. Contamination level is never going to get better when people discharge sewage into the lake, and the pollution level will consistently increase. Puri Garden was designed to provide economical as well as practical filtering system funded by the government.
