Water filters arrive in the Tonganagaon tea community

We’ve got water filters! A few years ago, most families in the Tonganagaon community in Assam were among the 76 million people in India without access to a safe water supply. Many suffered from waterborne illnesses often leading to loss of work or schooling and expensive doctor bills. Thanks to Numi Organic Tea’s commitment to safe water, Together for H2OPE Project is ensuring that all 6,500 families have access to safe drinking water. This program is training women community leaders to be WASH ambassadors and educators. In this photo, they are presenting families with water filters and training on proper usage and maintenance.
