Developed by Solutions Benefiting Life, which became Village Forward in 2010, the Aquasif system is low cost and efficient. It is produced and sold by local manufacturers in developing countries.
Household water treatment:
Village Forward trains local potters to develop micro-businesses that manufacture and distribute the Aquasif. These local micro-entrepreneurs not only develop self-sustaining businesses, but also promote water sanitation and hygiene practices in classrooms and community events.
According to years of research and development, the Aquasif deactivates 99.99% of bacteria in water in laboratory testing.
