August 29, 2018
SAFE Water Now, Inc. is a
U.S. non-profit providing expertise, services, and resources to solve the
problem of unsafe drinking water in Tanzania. The Village Potters in Ashville, N.C. receives donations, gives direction and expertise for the construction of water filters on site in East Africa.
Safe Water Now's manufacturing partner
in Arusha, Tanzania produces a high quality, yet affordable, household
ceramic water filter. At a purchase price of only $40 USD, the
filter produces sufficient safe drinking water for a family for 5 years. Although filters are affordable for
many, donations allow filters to be delivered to the most charitable
class, usually women and children. In this case, filters
are delivered along with water and hygiene educational workshops.
Introducing a new and
effective household water treatment to Tanzania also provides economic opportunities
for the people of Tanzania. New jobs are created in manufacturing,
sales, education, and transportation. SAFE
Water Now is an all-volunteer organization committed to saving lives by
providing a sustainable solution to the safe water problem in East Africa.
