    The challenge
    Students were suffering from water born diseases caused by drinking unsafe water in the school and at home. This affected their learning in school and regular duties as well as faced with huge medical bills.

    The Solutions
    Students were trained on how to make and maintain Biosand Water Filter. They were able to pass this knowledge and skill to the community.

    Results
    Students and members of the community are now able to attend school and their regular duties with less or no disruption caused by water born diseases and at the same time access safe drinking water at a cheaper cost and less or zero medical bill.

    Picture
    The President of Kenya H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta listens to the students explaining how the Filter works.

    SHOPHAR KENYA

    Kisumu Kenya

    TOP Kenya Founding Member

    The word “Shophar” is Hebrew word meaning horn or trumpet (Britannica Encyclopedia) To the Hebrew mind horns were potent symbols (Bill Bratt) and horns were blown:
    on joyful occasions
    to confuse enemies
    at the beginning of every month
    to call sacred assembly
    as the sound of war
    Shophar Kenya, metaphorically shall make a breakthrough for ESD within the SDG’s remaining period for communities to embrace change for sustainable development as we “blow” the Shophar during implementation. The Shophar shall be “blown” to break “walls” that prevent sustainable social, economic, environmental and cultural development of our society like the walls of biblical Jericho that fell down when the Shophar was blown (Joshua 6:1ff) – and the enemies fled away.
