The AguaClara program at Cornell University has partnered with Agua Para el Pueblo to build 14 plants in Honduras, serving 65,000 people to date. The program in Honduras continues to grow, and has spread to neighboring Nicaragua, with the first plant in the country being built in La Concordia.
AguaClara LLC has worked to bring AguaClara technologies to 4 villages in Jharkhand, India. AguaClara Reach is now partnering with Indian NGO Gram Vikas to pilot our Hydrodoser for the first time in the state of Odisha. The Hydrodoser will serve the community of Lahanda, having a population of 600 people. Each household will receive drinking water on tap, supplied by a lowland sanitary well, and pumped using solar energy up to an overhead tank where the gravity-powered treatment begins. Toilets and bathing rooms have been built for every home in the first phase.
In 2015 we partnered with NGO Pradan to install our Filtration-Disinfection system in the villages of Gufu and Ronhe (in the eastern state of Jharkhand) using a lowland sanitary well as the water source. The filtered water is disinfected using our Hydrodoser. Two stand alone Hydrodosers are also serving the villages of Jolhakarma and Durgunia where the water does not require any filtration. Each community is receiving water from a lowland sanitary well, pumped by a solar pump up to an overhead tank that then undergoes treatment and distributes water using gravity power. These projects have led to over 2,000 residents gaining access to safe water on tap, while also providing a viable demonstration of our systems for the entire country to see.
We are currently seeking to bring our work to many more countries throughout the world. We are interested in expanding throughout South Asia and Latin America, as well as piloting our work in Africa.
