Making an Impact:
One ICChange initiative is the Kenya Ceramic Project (KCP)/CeraMaji. The goal of KCP is to improve access to clean drinking water through the sustainable production of ceramic water filters that remove 99.9% of bacteria and other organisms.

Your participation will help raise awareness and financial support for this important project. By expanding production and building effective ceramic water filters and making them available at an affordable price, we can help alleviate the burden of disease caused by water born illnesses.
