Contact: Dr. Anil Kumar
August 2015 – August 2018
SATHI has built and distributed 160 filters in 12 villages, asking beneficiaries to pay 20% of the cost of the filters to give them a sense of ownership, and has conducted regular follow-up visits to ensure that they are being used successfully. They report that about 94% of the filters are being used regularly, with a resulting reduction in water-borne diseases of over 65%.
