Access to safe water has improved in Peru in recent years, yet significant shortfalls in both public infrastructure and household facilities remain. As a consequence many Peruvians do not have access to affordable and safe drinking water.
Things4.Life delivers safe drinking water to schools at scale, supplying many children that are most vulnerable to waterborne illness and disease caused by bacteria, viruses and parasites. According to UNICEF, more than 40% of diarrhoea cases in school children result from transmission in schools rather than homes. Access to safe water, along with hand washing with soap, proper sanitation and hygiene, is critical for student attendance and performance in school.
What do we do
Things4.Life offers a scalable water purification solution that delivers sustainable and safe water to schools and related institutions. We sell, install and maintain water purification systems based on ultrafiltration and UV treatment. The result is healthy and tasty drinking water, eliminating harmful bacteria and parasites.
Every sale includes the cost of delivery, installation and two years of maintenance. After this period institutions can purchase additional maintenance plans from Things4.Life at very affordable prices.
Things4.Life actively addresses the key barriers to implement water purification systems in sub-developed regions. These being: lack of credit/financing, low product awareness, insufficient product/system maintenance and generally weak distribution.
