Bio-sand Filters in Bihar

Aakansha Seva Sadan (ASS);

Muzaffarpur, Bihar

Contact: Ms. Bandana Sharma

Dates: July 2019 – June 2022

Total Budget: Rs. 10,28,250

2021 Budget: Rs. 3,39,750

During the second year of this project, ASS has built and distributed 72 Bio-Sand Filters (BSF) to the poor families, bringing the total to 145 for the first two years of this project. They have also shortlisted 72 additional families for distributing BSFs during the third year of the project. The manufacturing and distribution of these water filters was somewhat delayed due to the COVID-19 related restrictions by the Government.

Four local masons were trained to build the filters early in the project. This has been helpful as the program is expanded to various families in the area. 

Four more awareness programs were organized this year to make the people know of the benefits of using BSFs in being protected from water-borne diseases. A BSF demonstration workshop was also conducted to supplement the awareness programs. 

The BSF recipients have also been provided training in their proper use and maintenance.
