What we do
Reducing medical cost and increasing productivity through extermination of aquatic-polluting organisms
Guinea worms (parasites in polluted water) in target sites have completely disappeared, which enables residents to experience significant economic effects in the future including reduced hospital expenses, improved efficiency in education and productivity. Also, thanks to the improvement of the basin area, incidence rate of waterborne diseases among children reduced by 11%; and sanitary environment of drinking water has been built for women which is expected to bring positive outcomes, such as decreased threats of sexual violence, increased school attendance, and increased academic achievements of female students.
