Corporate Social Responsibility — Safe Drinking Water

1. Challenges providing water treatment for disadvantaged communities.

Short Bio: 

Because I know how to provide safe drinking water for disadvantaged communities worldwide I am driven to pursue this objective.  Because I can do it I must do it.  
My work matters because the provision of safe drinking water (potable water in general) saves lives and improves lives.
There are millions of BioSand water filters (my technology - freely given) being used world wide.   It is probable that a thousand or more are being constructed every day - providing improving the lives of several thousand people every day.
