We conducted a survey at Salia Sahi, the biggest slum in Bhubaneswar, Orissa, India. Through this survey, we realised that a major proportion of people consume the contaminated water as most of them could not afford purification techniques or were not aware of it. Also another group of people did not feel the need of purifying the water. Hence we intend to address the issue by providing a low cost water purification system using indigenous materials such that the system is easy to maintain and use.
We bring to you, the use of bio-sand filtration combined with bamboo and coconut charcoal for purifying water, significant reduction of iron content in water and enriching the water contents. The product is a unique combination of two abundantly available resources. It is a cost effective and an efficient system of water purification. We intend to engage the community in the business model thereby increasing the overall awareness among the community .
We will be following the model of micro franchising.
Most developing countries have extremely high unemployment rates, which force people to become entrepreneurs out of necessity to survive. These people typically don't create businesses that flourish. Micro franchises are proven business systems that have a much greater potential for growth and job creation.
