Water Filters

Water Filter Project

A simple water filter can make a huge difference in the life of a child.

Drinking water in Nepal comes from several sources. It comes from shallow wells, from public taps provided by the government, or from streams. The tap water is hazardous especially to children. It’s not properly treated and is laden with bacteria. The wells produce water from the shallow water table that is contaminated, and the streams are often polluted by upstream use.

Safe drinking water is a huge problem in Nepal and throughout the world. Six years ago Ten Friends began installing water filters in orphanages. Each of these water filters provides safe drinking water for the children and staff – up to 100 people per filter.
