Retrofitable Open Architecture Filters / Improve quality of drinking water in storage tanks

To fight the number 1 killer of school children in Kenya i.e. Water borne related diseases; we design, build & distribute a new kind of water tank filtration system to low income schools & help them improve the quality of drinking water in school storage tanks.
We use open architecture design to build our retrofit-able water filters as alternative filtration systems popular in the developed world are expensive to buy, maintain & because they come in the form of filter cartridges they have problems integrating with some of our local infrastructure like our rooftop plumbing infrastructure.
So far 10,500 people have benefited from this project
