Water Purification Prototype

- 105 community members participated in entrepreneurship training
- 15 people participated in the entrepreneurship contest with viable business plans that will use potable water
This local organization implemented a program to provide a low-cost, energy-efficient water purification system for rural and underserved communities in Venezuela. The group developed and built a 200-liter/day solar water treatment system designed exclusively to meet the needs of remote communities. During the course of program implementation, the prototype provided 158 individuals with clean water. To ensure long-term sustainability, the organization established a management committee comprising 14 members of the local community. They also launched “entrepreneurship days” to encourage members of the community to find ways to use the potable water for agricultural, beauty, or other consumer products.
