Planet Water Foundation
They are a US based, non-profit organization focused on bringing clean water to the world’s most disadvantaged communities through the installation of community-based water filtration systems and deploying hygiene education programs into impoverished communities. Their projects are focused on schools, children, and rural communities across the Asia-Pacific region and Latin America.
They hold a vision of a world where people no longer die simply because they lack access to clean drinking water and basic sanitation facilities.
They strive to alleviate the waterborne disease, illness and death through providing access to clean drinking water and improved sanitation facilities in the world’s most disadvantaged communities.
What they do:
CLEAN, SAFE WATER
Providing sustainable community-based water solutions.
Their AquaTower solution changes the lives of children, families and community because bacteria, protozoa, viruses, pathogens and other contaminates greater than 0.1 micron are removed and crystal clean drinking water is produced. Scalable, affordable and easy to install, their AquaTowers are simple to maintain and are a sustainable development solution that includes training, spare parts, project monitoring and job creation.
SCHOOL-BASED WATER-HEALTH & HYGIENE EDUCATION
Changing behavior saves lives through child-friendly programs.
Kicking off the installation of their clean water solution, Planet Water implements a school-based Water-Health & Hygiene Education program in each school they support. Their four-module, four-week program educates children on the importance of clean water as it relates to the spreading of germs, proper method of hand washing, and protecting against germs through a hands-on, activity-based program which incorporates games, drama, song and dance. All materials are delivered by trained teachers in the local language.
CHANGE YOUR WATER TO CHANGE THE WORLD
It’s a bottle of water, right?
Yes, but it’s so much more than that when it’s a bottle of Planet Water
They're not harvesting water from ancient glaciers or providing super human energy. But they do know that every bottle contains satisfaction that everyone can enjoy because they've changed, or even saved, a child's life.See more
