Appropriate Technology — Water Filters and Stoves
Nicaragua

This site uses simple forms of technology to help people in poor communities to better their health and save money. We build and sell bio-sand water filters. The filters help to reduce waterborne diseases and thus reduce their need to stay home sick or go see a doctor. We also provide fuel efficient smokeless stoves. These wood burning stoves use 70% less firewood and remove harmful smoke from people's homes. We use these tools to help provide opportunities for the poor and also build relationships so that we might share the gospel with them.
