We would like to have a camera to record and document the outcomes of our waterfilter shop in Tansania. It can be a used Camera, preferably a reflex camera but a digital one will be sufficient as well.
The Problem: Safe drinking water is the basis for a healthy life. Many diseases are caused by contaminated water. Everyday, 4000 people die because of the consequences of dirty water; the human right to an access to safe drinking water is still not guaranteed in most parts of the world. Besides the major sickness, there are other negative effects such as missing out on work or education. Furthermore, medication is very expensive and can lead to financial crises of the concerned. The Solution: A Watefilter made out of local resources makes it possible to get clean and safe drinking water. This filter is produced on site and being sold in waterfilter shops for a fair price. Our pilot project is set in Kigoma, Tanzania. A production facility is being implemented including all necessary machines and a good infrastructure. A network including different NGOs (especially MIBOS) supports our project. Taking regional structures into account, we will realize our vision to empower people to take entrepreneurial action and allow access to safe drinking water.
