1 in 10 people don't have access to cleaning drinking water, but that means
9 in 10 people can help!

THE MISSION

PURPOSE

My Mission is to help people get clean drinking water by providing water filters and systems to people and communities in need around the world. I hope to tap into a community of passionate individuals who share a love for the photography and a commitment to making a positive impact and inspire others to take action in this cause.

A WATER CRisis

Water, a basic right, is something many people around the world don't have access too. Whether it's lack of physical water sources or contaminated water, people are becoming sick and losing their lives. In addition, this lack of clean water has impacts that ripple out to all aspects of life and community, especially impacting women and children. Solving this problem will open so many opportunities to for the people around the world.

SOLUTiONS

MY SOLUTION

The solutions and technology to this problem are available, its just a matter of putting in the time and effort to do it and help. The main solution I focus on is distribution of Clean Water Filters, specifically the SAWYER WATER FILTERS.

Distributing and setting up FILTERS in communities around the world can make a huge impact and change lives. Doing it in person and making that connection in real life, can really make a change.

Without the need to ship filters, the potential postal mishaps are avoided, ensuring that these solutions get into the hands of those who need them

THE FILTER

The Sawyer Water Filter is versatile, lightweight, and compact, with the ability to filter hundreds of gallons of water, providing clean drinkable water for people using the filter system. It is easy to use and easy to clean, allowing for increased longevity and therefore, increased access to clean water

The filter can be utilized through various different water systems depending on the needs of the area and the funding available
