Teachers report that at each break the children go straight to the Nazava filter to drink water from it

Where does water come from? »

In my first month with Kopernik, I had the opportunity to join our field team in Bojonegoro and Tuban, East Java, to support the distribution of Nazava water filters, a project my colleague Apri described in his recent blog. In Tuban we met with Mr Usman, the head of UPTD Palang District, to seek permission to distribute water filters in schools. In this district, we will start by distributing water filters to 14 Indonesia Heritage Foundation kindergartens.
