In May of 2013, we took gave a unit to Khayega, Kenya. Six months later, we received this update:

Masiyenze Primary School is one of the beneficiaries of the chlorine manufacturing kit.
Before the arrival of the kit, the children were using untreated water for drinking and washing hands. The water was sourced from an unprotected spring. Since the arrival of the chlorine kit, which was to be used by both children and the community, there is an up-take of treated water in the school and the community at large.
At the start, the community was slow at using the chlorine because of their set ways. The children were more at east with it and because of this we have observed an increase in the demand for chlorine for home use. This indicates that parents have now adopted to the use of chlorine for their water in homes.
More community members are getting chlorine from the school. The children can
now measure and treat drinking and hand washing water. The kit is a blessing to the
community and the school because we have observed few cases of stomach aches
and sickness.

From Shanderema Boys High School in Kambiri, Kenya:

Dear Sir/Madam,
Greetings in the name of the Lord! I take this opportunity on behalf of the entire community of Shanderema Boys High School to express my sincere gratitude for your kind donation of water treatment equipment to our school.
Since we started using the equipment, we have noticed a tremendous improvement in the general health of our 550 students with reduced cases of typhoid and other water related sickness being reported. The water treatment equipment has also, to a great extent, provided safe drinking water to 420 pupils of the neighboring Shanderema Primary School and countless other people in the community around the school.
Due to its benefits, we strong recommend that the noble cause should be extended to all schools and to villages in the interior areas where treated water is a dream. This could be done with the help of local leaders.
We welcome you to our school once again and wish you all the best.
Thank you and God bless.
William Sunguti
Principal
