While billions are spent on large charity and aid packages to governments each year, the problem continues and is getting worse.

In doing so, KWENCH will be providing legitimate, reliable customers to the local water and sanitation utility, the Nairobi City Water and Sewer Company (NCWSC), enabling the NCWSC to increase its profitability and extend services to other informal settlements.
With the sweeping water shortages all over the world, water filtration is important and valuable to several different countries and peoples. To solve this problem, and help save lives, we have developed a portable water filtration device that will supply cool, clean water all over the world. The production of this filtration will not only bring fresh drinking water to third world countries and populous’ around the world but raise the human mortality rate. The peoples that are thus affected by the change in health would ultimately be more productive in their economy and government.
