Families in Kenya might not have to drink from contaminated streams and rivers much longer.

A group of inspiring students at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology have developed a solar-powered water filter.  The device meets the EPA requirements for PH, lead, bacteria and water hardness.

“The water purification device was designed for a family of five, from materials easily available in Kenya.”

The next step is an implementation plan to bring the water purity devices to Kenyan tribes.
