The Kenya LifeStraw® Project Proponents seek to distribute over one million LifeStraw® Family units, serving over four million people, in rural Kenya. These units will treat contaminated drinking water, and reduce the demand for conventional water treatment through boiling water with non-renewable biomass. With the assistance of carbon finance, this Project can be economically sustainable and provide a significant improvement in public health. Through the deployment of LifeStraw® Family units, the Project Proponents also seek to mitigate the release of more than 20 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions over the first ten years of the Project.
