Too Big for One, Too Big for AllCreated by:
Hi! I just want to share our class' community project entitled "Too Big for One, Too Big for All". In our language, tubig means water. Along with the grassroots and leaders of the local community in our area, it has been identified that skin infections and diarrhea are two of the most prevalent illnesses in the community and the residents identified the unsafe water that they are using in their local well. With further laboratory examination, it was indeed confirmed that their water was very high in bacterial count. So, the community, with the help of UNILAB foundation and our class, have decided to make clay filters modelled after WHO's clay pot filter. With further testing, it has been proven that the clay filter significantly lowered the bacterial count in their water. This picture is our first clay filter making session with them. Working with the community for cleaner water has been fun!
