SAM2 Filter Installed at Catholic School of RilimaReported by Chip Kragt, Story written by Amanda Mulder
The Water Project also installed a SAM2 Community Filter at the Catholic School of Rilima, located in Amizero village. The school serves 1336 students and staff. Currently, they utilize a mixture of rain water and water from the nearby lake.
SAM2 (Sand And Membrane) filters are large capacity solutions with a 10-year-plus lifespan. A SAM2 requires no electricity or fuel and has no moving parts, making it the ideal solution for rural areas. Schools and Health Clinics are trained how to use and maintain the filter, empowering them to be self-sufficient and address their own needs.
