Friendly Water for the World

Changing the World One Household, One Community at a Time.

Clean drinking water for all!

Everything Is Possible! Yote Yawezekana!  Vyose Birashoboka!  Todo es posible!

Friendly Water for the World BioSand Water Filters offer an elegantly simple technology that can remove up to 95 - 99% of bacteria and viruses, amoebae, protozoa, and worms, as well as metals, providing clean water for the family. More than 3.6 million people now have access to BioSand-filtered water through installations in homes, schools, orphanages, hostels, and clinics in 66 countries.

BioSand Water Filters work!

After 70% of the residents in the Bomet Region of Kenya were able to access BioSand Water Filters, and combined with local community sanitation efforts, dysentery cases in the local hospital declined by 85%.

BioSand Water Filters provide affordable business opportunities

Filters are inexpensive, durable, and made of locally available materials (sand, gravel, and cement). A Filter that provides clean water for a family costs approximately $50 and will work for up to 30 years with almost no maintenance needed. Fabricating and installing BioSand Water Filters is a proven local micro-business that can and does create local jobs and generates needed income. We help people help themselves.

Friendly Water for the World supports local communities

We currently have projects in Kenya, Burundi, India, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Uganda, South Sudan, Zimbabwe, and Honduras, and we are expanding.

Dangers of dirty water

Every day, 2,000 children die from diarrhea caused by unsafe drinking water and poor sanitation. Together, with your assistance, we can save the equivalent of 100 kindergarten classes every day! Come join us!
