Technology: A combination of technologies based on RO (Reverse Osmosis and UV) will be used to rid brackish water of pathogens, particulates, and dissolved impurities, especially fluoride and salinity.
Health + Hygiene education: We work through intensive campaigns on health and personal hygiene to educate rural communities on the need to store water carefully, adopt hygienic sanitation practices and avoid contaminating water resources.
