Safe Water for a Brighter Future

Our mission is to prevent waterborne infectious diseases by promoting family health and self-reliance.

This is accomplished by teaching effective safe water practices, rapid community water testing, household water treatment, and safe water storage.

The Challenge

Over 2 billion people do not have access to clean and safe water. Contaminated water can transmit fatal diseases that cause over 3 million deaths each year.

Access to safe water through infrastructure improvements is the ideal solution to this problem. We applaud the efforts of many organizations improving water access. However, the reality of these improvements are in the distant future for most communities.

In the meantime, with Bright Water Foundation’s safe water teaching, rapid water testing, and appropriate water treating, individuals can have safe water now. Safe water and healthier, more productive lives.

The Difference

The Bright Water Foundation

Teach. Test. Treat.

We provide a unique community-led “Teach, Test, Treat” Safe Water Education Program, using a simple science based rapid water testing method and village friendly training and educational materials.

This initiative supports the efforts of water development agencies in bringing “safe” water to every household.

The Bright Water Foundation fills an important gap in the water supply chain, especially for rural dwellers.

Even safe water taken from deep boreholes has been shown to be contaminated by the time it is drawn, transported, and placed in household water supply vessels.

The BWF Teach, Test, Treat approach teaches and enables individual households to independently treat and safely store water for family use.
