Kohler Clarity water filters are a great water filter for classrooms due to their all in one designed nature. This ease of use makes it an ideal candidate for a location like a school where the design simplicity works to the benefit of its application. This was matched with the need for filters in a Botswana school where a clean water solution was needed.
$1,000 of water filters we’re distributed to the school in Botswana all because of one Idaho school teachers willingness to engage her students with the global Water Crisis. While researching Botswana for a unit that she would be teaching to her third grade class, she came across Connect For Water’s page on a pre-existing projects in Botswana.
She decided to contact Connect For Water about starting a new Champion project to raise money water filters 4 school kids in Botswana. Her class raised $500 which the school matched for a total of $1,000 to be used for the purchase of water filters for Botswana school children.
Kgomodiatshaba Primary School was the decided upon destination for the twenty purchased Kohler Clarity filters based of off an identified need for clean water to become accessible in this area because they are a remote settlement with around 357 people. The filters were then brought to the community and are ready for use in the classroom of the primary school.
The access to clean and filtered water allows for students to develop their own abilities which translates to a more powerful and connected community.
The presence of these filters enables the development of the community further as kids have access to education without waterborne illness being an inhibiting factor in their development. Students can now have more consistent attendance because they won’t have to miss school due to the spread of waterborne illnesses, helping to increase potential and hope in the local community.
