WHEREVER YOU LIVE IN THE WORLD, THE SAFETY AND ACCESSIBILITY OF DRINKING-WATER IS PARAMOUNT TO ENSURING YOUR HEALTH & WELL-BEING.

Drinking contaminated water poses a host of health risks: your water may be contaminated with infectious parasites, contain toxic chemicals, and other hazards.

 

Improving access to safe drinking-water can result in tangible improvements to health, well-being, and productivity.

 

Sadly, there are many regions across the world where access to safe drinking water is extremely limited. Sometimes, clean & safe water is so expensive that many people just can’t afford to buy it.

2 BILLION

People use a drinking-water source contaminated with faeces.

236 MILLION

People spend more than 30 minutes per round trip collecting water.

159 MILLION

People drink directly from surface sources such as streams & lakes.

Our CAFE filter can remove parasites and toxins. We work with communities so that they are trained & up-skilled to manage the CAFE filter. The community can then sell the water at locally affordable rates. We believe that our CAFE system, together with great community partnerships & enterprise opportunities that it creates, is the answer to providing clean & safe drinking to communities that need it.
