Solution Overview & Benefits

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:

  • Low cost system (under 1 USD/person/year)
  • Easily made by potters using local materials
  • High water flow rate
  • Kills bacteria; reduces sickness
  • Provides a local microbusiness
  • Easy to maintain
  • Lasts for one year
  • Colloidal silver deactivates bacteria
  • All natural, non-toxic

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.
