Tusafishe / Large community water filters

Tusafishe
Tusafishe

Tusafishe designs and installs low cost community water filters for large communities like schools, orphanages, and refugee camps. The enterprise is a SEED low carbon Award winner 2019 for being an Eco-inclusive enterprise. The filters installed by Tusafishe use moringa seed powder as a coagulants and fine ground granite as the main medium of filtration eliminating the use of solid fuel in purification of water. We also plant moringa trees every time we install a filter. The enterprise has a partnership with Finance Trust Bank which makes it possible for low income clients to get a soft loan to acquire the system.
