SODIS Foundation

To develop and promote solutions for improving drinking water quality and health. For achieving this, we cooperate with the private, public and development sector in order to benefit people in Latin America.
Develop an indicator for Solar Water Disinfection
This project will develop and test an indicator, developed in partnership with InnoCentive, to support local health workers promote Solar Water Disinfection (SODIS), a low-cost method to purify drinking water. SODIS has been shown to be an effective and adequate intervention to prevent waterborne diseases like diarrhea, cholera and dysentery. With the support of the low-cost indicator, the method can be promoted even more effectively. project reportread updates from the field
Micro-credit for families in Cochabamba
People living in peri-urban areas of cities in the developing world have a large unmet need for improved water and sanitation services. This need currently is neither met by the existing commercial sector nor by government entities. This project offers attractive conditions to low-income families for micro-credits in order to facilitate access to improved water and sanitation services (toilets, etc.). Additionally, it provides customized advisory services and hygiene education to the families. project reportread updates from the field
