In the rural areas and semi urban areas, people still have very little access to treated potable water, Sanitation practices are also still very poor, resulting to critical health problems. Children and HIV/AIDS patients are the most vulnerable victims. Water borne diseases are frequent often leading to death.
As a solution, LIVELIHOOD is promoting the production and facilitating the installation of a very innovative and sustainable technology: the bio-sand water filter. Thanks to this filter thousands of families will have access to perfectly clean drinkable water in their houses. We also conduct education programmes on good sanitation and hygiene practices.
