#ICYMI we have a new 2016 in Pictures blog post up on our website. [Link in bio] It features photos from our projects like this one of Suchitra Sarder grabbing a glass of clean water in her home in the rural village of Porakatla, Bangladesh.

Two inquisitive members of the indigenous Maasai ethnic group of East Africa check out our BioSand Filter project in Kenya. These inexpensive and locally-made water filters are now in families homes in the surrounding community.

2016 has been a great year for the OHorizons Foundation...
We ran our largest BioSand Filter project to-date in Bangladesh, won multiple prestigious awards, and increased sustainable safe drinking water access around the world!

It’s truly exciting to see more and more people get safe drinking water through our empowering approach. To encapsulate the year, we’ve put together an OHorizons: 2016 in Pictures blog post. [Link in Bio]

Thank you for your support, we truly appreciate it. From everyone at OHorizons, we wish you and your family a happy New Year!

We're featured in the Humanitarian Makers Member Spotlight. This movement, much like our organization, believes that the right application of appropriate and disruptive technology, coupled with a keen understanding of real-world problems can lead to unique opportunities for those involved in innovation and transformational breakthroughs in the way aid is delivered. http://buff.ly/2glj8bq

Today is #GivingTuesday. The World Health Organization estimates that investing $1 in drinking water infrastructure in South Asia yields a $3.70 return, the highest of any developing region worldwide: this means a $10 donation to our Bangladesh project can not only provide a person with clean drinking water for life, but it can yield an economic return of over $35! http://buff.ly/2ftAKD6
