Filtration – Our River Solution

The Mini-Maji, our solar-powered water Cube, which usually pumps from underground aquifers, has been adapted to pump water from a river. With the addition of an appropriate and proven rapid sand filtration unit, this solution eliminates the harmful larvae from the river water and thereby provides these communities with sustainable safe access to their preferred water source while eliminating direct contact with the infested river. The diagram below presents how the solution works:

Our Project Maji River Solution is bringing a safe, sustainable, and cost-effective intervention to communities suffering from bilzharzia (schistosomiasis) across the banks of the Volta River. To introduce the River Solution, Project Maji Country Director, Ghana, Amol Parker shared:

“The River Solution is truly emblematic of the kind of innovation we stand for at Project Maji – the one that implements simple, reliable and affordable technology to improve daily life. The Teikpitikope Community suffered from a myriad of life-threatening water-borne diseases and knowing that this simple solution will alleviate the community’s suffering, is why we do what we do.”
