In Siaya and Bondo, Kenya, gathering water is an all-day affair. Families walk to collect it from the muddy Yala River. They also have to find wood, a scarce resource. Then they must boil the water, producing greenhouse gases and, in many cases, indoor air pollution.

The Hydraid® BioSand water filter changes lives. It cleans water with no need for wood, electricity, or replacement parts. With proper use, it removes 99.999% of parasites, 90%-99.9% of bacteria, and 80%-99.9% of viruses. Since it eliminates the need to burn wood to boil and purify water, it also cuts emissions.

By purchasing NativeEnergy Help Build™ carbon offsets, you will provide upfront funding for these filters. Your offsets will be verified to The Gold Standard, which provides project oversight to ensure that the filters produce clean water and verified carbon reductions for years to come.

With your help, the families of Siaya and Bondo will have more time to pursue school and work. They will visit the doctor less. They will breathe easier in their homes.

To get started, select “Kenya Clean Water Project” when you offset your footprint.
