Many congratulations Katya Cherukumilli for winning the "Designing Solutions for Poverty challenge" we hope the method for fluoride removal that you've developed and are bringing forward has it in it to bring relief to the many Fluoride affected in Nalgonda. Let's work closely to make things better for the people in Nalgonda.
Fluorosis is endemic over 25 countries across the globe and millions of people are seen affected by it. About 62 million people including 6 million children suffer from fluorosis due to excess ingestion of fluoride through drinking water.

Dear all !!
Hope you all are doing good. !!!
Wanted to share some updates of our work on arsenic free water for all.
Currently we are working in West Bengal, there are many challenges in this work but one of the most challenging problem is customer affordability, they are too poor to buy the arsenic water filter. They can't buy filter in 2000 INR but can give 200 INR/PM. So we think seeking microfinance organisation help will be a good option.
But the question is how we can bring microfinance to help us out?
So in order to deal with this problem we are planning to arrange a state level (west Bengal) conference on arsenic contamination, health effects and their remedies. And will invite all the Microfinance organisation, NGO and CSR people to solve this customer affordability problem.
This is where we need every body support and guidance. Please help us to arrange this conference not in monitoring terms but bringing some key players from microfinance field, CSR etc.
I am sharing test report and brochure. Looking forward to hearing you all !!!
