Clean Drinking Water
Not everyone has a clean source of water to drink from. Two-thirds people in of sub-Saharan Africa rely mostly or completely on surface water. This is water from the surface of bodies like rivers, lakes, or wetlands, and is often highly polluted.
As a result, 3,575,000 people die every year from water related diseases, with 2.2 million of them being children. This is equivalent to a jumbo jet crashing every hour.
In order to kill water bacteria to the degree that they can, remote communities with no filtration tools are forced to boil their drinking water. This requires unnecessary burning of wood and other flammable materials, which wastes millions of healthy trees as a result
Top Service SDG Goals
How we do it?
We work with communities in our scope to ensure that they will not have to boil their drinking water to make it safe by using reverse osmosis machinery. This is just one part of our mission to ensure that everyone on earth is able to access a clean source of drinking water.
Who will benefit from KAYA's clean water projects?
We believe that water is a right, and not privilege. Therefore, all members of the communities involved with KAYA´s projects can get access to our education projects, and we provide many opportunities for others as well.
How does the reverse osmosis process work?
Reverse osmosis is a water purification process that uses a semi permeable membrane to separate unwanted particles and microorganisms from usable water.
Is water purified using Reverse Osmosis safe to drink?
Our technology uses an advanced form of this nanofiltration, separating contaminants from water with a 0.001 micrometer filter. The result of this is water that is free from harm and healthy to drink.
How can I support KAYA's clean water project?
Each project that KAYA develops brings powerful benefits to local communities. In supporting KAYA, you are simultaneously helping them with necessities like clean water, education, and healthcare.
