BioSand Filter Workshop in April, 2007


A Vision for Clean Water provided a training workshop for individuals and organizations that serve the poor in developing countries. The trainers, John and Eileen Heasley, have been certified by both CAWST (http://cawst.org ) and Dr. Manz the inventor of the BioSand Filter. The curriculum covered the theory, technical skills, hands-on learning and plenty of interaction that participants need to plan, implement or actively participate in a water and sanitation program in a developing country. Participants attending the workshop will take this information to Haiti, India, Rwanda, Honduras, and Ecuador.
