62 Household Filters distributed in KagogoReported by Consolée UWIMANA, Story written by Margaret Coolman
Water Project volunteer installed 62 household filters in the Kagogo sector. 248 people are expected to benefit directly from these filters, while 496 will indirectly benefit as the filters are shared with two neighboring familes.
SAM3 (Sand And Membrane) filters are placed in households for a family and their neighbors. They meet WHO's standards and requires no electricity to function, making it ideal for rural communities. Each family receives extensive training and ongoing volnteer support to maintain the filter for it's 10-year-plus lifespan.
