The Maji Salama filter transforms people’s lives by providing a longstanding sustainable solution to treat contaminated water.
It is simple to use, requires no external power or replacement cartridges, long lasting and relatively low cost.
For the past 3 years Maji Salama has used portable filters manufactured by a partner organisation.
In 2017 we decided to move to a simple, gravity fed filter for use in schools, clinics and community centres.
While the ultra-filters are imported from China, the other components are readily available in Kenya.
So, the filter kits will be assembled in Kenya and installed by members of the local communities in which they will be used.
