Who are we?
SafeSIPP provides portable water purification systems for organizations to distribute to developing countries with limited access to clean and safe drinking water. Throughout the developing world, 884 million people lack access to safe drinking water resulting in 3.5 million deaths due to water-related illness.
In addition, in order to obtain water, each day women and children are forced to travel over a mile to a local water source carrying 80 pound jugs on their heads. Over a long time period, this chore of carrying heavy loads results in health problems such as pregnancy complications and spinal deformity. In addition, women and children spend their time collecting water for their families instead of working to earn an income or attending school.
According to the United Nations, access to safe drinking water will reduce poverty by promoting economic growth.
