Keeping households healthy with clean water in Indonesia | Nazava, Ashden Award

Most people in Indonesia rely on wells or springs for their water supply, and even where tap water is available it is never safe to drink. Some 15,000 Indonesian children under five die annually from waterborne diseases such as diarrhoea. Nazava water filters enable lower income households to purify their well or tap water without the need to boil it by burning wood or using electricity. This reduces disease and sickness, lowers household costs and reduces CO₂ emissions. The company has sold 53,000 water filters and reached 200,000 people since 2009.
