OUR SOLUTION

We are a social impact venture distributing locally produced water filters in Tanzania. Our solution is simple, local and sustainable.
Safe water is not a privilege, it is a human right – and we are working hard to turn this fundamental right into reality.

WHAT WE DO

In addition to the filter, we offer a comprehensive service to not only educate the local population, but also offer them sustainable quality afterwards.

PRESENTATIONS

Our Waterpreneurs regularly conduct workshops about hygiene and the consequences of contaminated water consumption at schools, churches and other local institutions.

THE FILTER

Our filter isn't just a regular filter. It's an easy got produce solution for water decontamination world-wide. And yes, the water quality is certified. Our filter cleans water to 99.9%.

SERVICES

To ensure that the filter is properly cleaned and the quality does not deteriorate, the manufacturer offers continuous support with the process of maintenance as an additional service.

THE FILTER

Simple concepts are sometimes most effective to solve a complex problem.
Only four materials are needed to produce our water filter: Clay, sawdust, water and silver nitrate. Except silver nitrate, these resources can be sourced locally anywhere in the world.
Our production process starts by shredding clay and sawdust into small particles, which we then mix together with water. This mixture is then pressed into a filter form and dried for several days. The filter gets burned for 10 hours, burning out the organic material and leaving behind micropores, giving the products is purifying quality.
To complete the production a small but sufficient amount of silver nitrate is applied. 
In order to guarantee a high filter quality, our filtration quality has already been tested several times and and a purifying quality of 99,9% has been certified by the Tanzanian Ministry of Water.

WHAT MAKES OUR FILTER SPECIAL

Our filter can purify water from physical and bacterial contamination using organic local resources.
The water filters are produced locally by our local Waterpreneurs and then sold to the local communities at a fair price.
With a lifetime of more than 2 years our product offers a sustainable and effective way of purifying drinking water.

OUR STORY

In 2014 students of the TU Munich recognized the severe drinking water contamination in Sub-Saharan Africa and realized that tackling this issue is crucial.
Starting 2017, we successfully implemented our first pilot project in Kigoma, Tanzania.
We were able to sell a significant amount of filters and reached our proof of concept.
In November of 2018 we moved to Kasulu in Eastern Kigoma to set up our own production site. We were able to establish a filter production facility  with necessary machinery and infrastructure in less than 4 months.
Since May 2019 our production in Kasulu is supplying access to safe drinking water to the communities in the Kigoma Region.

LOCAL BUSINESS

The purpose and very foundation of our project is its economical feasibility ensuring sustainable change in the long term.
Our local Waterpreneur, Adolf Yanda, fabricates the water filters locally in our own production facility. That means no imports, no dependency.
This local business reaches break-even when selling 25 filter sales per month, enabling a fair salary for our waterpreneurs and creating small reserves for irregular expenses.
Building relationships to local institutions and businesses is crucial to drive the growth of our business. Leveraging contacts to local and international NGOs enables us to further accelerate the diffusion of our solution.
