Household Biosand Filter Training
Safe drinking water is one of the most important issues of development work, especially among low-income families living in rural areas. Biosand filtration is an appropriate and low-cost method for household water treatment, and is proven to reduce diarrhoeal incidence. The BushProof biosand filtration course is intended for those who want to learn about promoting household level biosand filtration as an effective household water treatment. The course will provide an overview of the theoretical aspects of sand filtration, but a large part will also involve hands-on practicals. The course also covers critical issues of how to set up local production sustainably.
