Every cup of clean water matters!

ERDO is working with our trusted partners in Honduras, Bangladesh, Cambodia and Zimbabwe to bring clean water to children and their families.

Bio Sand Filters in Hondurashonduras bio-sand filter

This bio sand filter design is a plastic container with layers of sand and gravel that cleverly filters out impurities, providing fresh clean drinking water for children. Both water and sanitation are essential for child health so we’re really excited about bringing this simple technology to help families in Honduras.

Project goal:

• To provide 310 bio sand filters to individual homes and install six filtration systems in elementary schools 
• Your gift of $186 will provide a bio sand filter to one family
• Your gift of $2,632 will provide a filtration system for one school 



Tube Wells in Bangladeshlittle girl in bangladesh at tube well

Tube wells are sunk into the ground to reach clean sources of water and are used in countries that are closer to sea-level, such as Bangladesh. The tubes are linked to hand pumps, so with a little pumping that creates suction, the fresh water is drawn.

Project goal:

  • To provide 100 tube wells and reach 12,500 people
  • Your gift of $2,225 will provide one well that will help 25 families



Bio Sand Filters in Cambodia

Bio Sand filters take polluted water and cleverly filter out impurities, leaving fresh water for children to drink. Both water and sanitation are essential for child health so we’re really excited about increasing the number of these to help more families.

  • To provide 2,000 people with access to clean water through bio sand filters
  • Your gift of $235 will provide a bio sand filter and eco-latrine to one family 


Drilled Wells in Zimbabwe

In countries like Zimbabwe where water is hiding deep below the earth, drilled wells are the only option to provide clean drinking water.  A large truck with specialized drilling equipment is brought into the community where it bores through the layers of earth to access fresh water. A friend of ERDO has committed to funding $10,000 of each well in 2018. That means your gift of any amount will be doubled!

Project goal:

  • To build 5 wells at Zimbabwean schools
  • Your gift of $20,000 will provide one well
