Meet Ugandan Water Project!

Meet one our of non-profit partners, Ugandan Water Project (UWP)!  UWP is a humanitarian organization that focuses on providing rain catchers to rural communities in Uganda, Africa.  They also utilize Sawyer filters to provide clean and safe water.  Their goal is to help Ugandans pull themselves out of poverty in a sustainable way.

Different teams from Ugandan Water Project make frequent trips to Uganda and always capture amazing photos during their visits.  We would like to share a few of their photos on the blog today!

Filters in Togo, Africa!

As we’ve mentioned in previous posts, Compassion International, a child sponsorship organization, is one of our partners and they raise funds to provide Sawyer filters for their sponsored families.

Currently Sawyer’s representatives in Togo, Africa are assembling and delivering a few thousand filters to Compassion’s sponsored families in Togo.  Our Sawyer representatives train the families how to assemble and maintain the filters and teach the importance of drinking and using clean water.

These photos have been taken over the past couple weeks.  Enjoy a behind the scenes look at a filter distribution in Togo, Africa!

Photos from the Field

As a company we are thrilled to be working with lots of amazing non-profit organizations who are distributing Sawyer filters around the world.  These organizations are changing lives through the provision of clean water.  Currently our filters are being used in over 70 countries!

Today we would like to post a few photos from the field that give a glimpse into the incredible work our non-profit partners are doing.


The above photos were posted by I Thirst International.  A team of I Thirst International staff just returned home from a trip to Nicaragua.  During their brief trip, they were able to provide clean water to over 750 people!


These photos are from MAP International.  The left photo was taken in Ecuador and the right in Uganda.  In Uganda, MAP requires the filter recipients to put in labor hours into their communities to earn the filters and have a sense of ownership of the filters.

Thanks to all of our partners for their efforts and passion to provide clean water to those who truly need it.
