2014 to 2016
May 2014 – First assessment trip
Accomplishments: took water and health surveys, facilitated communication with the community to understand their needs
January 2016 – Second assessment trip
Accomplishments: took more water assessments, assess what the government and other non-profits have built and brought into the community, discovered the community’s enthusiasm towards chlorine producing units
August 2017 – Implementation trip
We just returned from our implementation trip where we provided the community with five chlorine producing units (CPU). CPUs use electrolysis to make chlorine from a mixture of table salt and water and is powered through a solar panel. The chlorine is then used to treat the drinking water!
