AWARD Finalists 2015

WAF Awards 2015 finalists come from countries where drinking water pollution is a serious concern: Nepal, Haiti and China. The high incidence of water borne diseases in children, like diarrhoea, is a sad common fact in all three countries.

ENPHO – brings water filters to rural and remote places in Nepal in a sustainable way, helping to develop local businesses that manufacture and sell low-tech Bio-Sand water filters for home users.

Slow-Down – brought a dead river back to life, giving hope that the increase in industrial pollution of lakes and rivers in China can be reversed. China not only faces water quality issues, but also severe water shortages, especially in the north where water demand greatly exceeds supply.

SOIL – makes available a sanitary solution that prevents human waste from entering the water cycle, thus avoiding ground water pollution.
