The Neptune Project is thrilled to announce a partnership with the Center for Girls and Interaction—Malawi (CEGI). Water scarcity and contamination impacts many communities that CEGI works with. Together, we have identified a need in these communities for resources to decontaminate their water, and have access to water in a close vicinity from them. The Neptune Project is committed to engineer solutions for these communities in partnership with CEGI. We will be initially focusing on three pilot communities where we have identified a need for better access to healthy water, all located in Northern Malawi: Doloba, Choma, and Malivenji. The Neptune Project is thrilled to be expanding our impact to an international scale and take a big step towards fulfilling our mission–Safe Water for the World’s Children.
In partnership with Stanford Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW), we will be working on using biochar created from corn husk to create water filters. Maize is a central crop in Malawi, and this model will allow local farms to have a self-sustaining way to filter the water in their surrounding communities.
