Implementing Safe Water Interventions in Tanzania

Commitment by

Hernreich Family Foundation, Global Action

In 2008, Global Action and the Hernreich Family Foundation committed to add water purification practices to their existing micro-nutrient fortification program in Tanzania in order to reduce malnutrition and increase access to safe drinking water for 25,000 Tanzanian children. To do so, they planned to incorporate distribution of Procter and Gamble's PUR water-purification technology to their existing efforts to distribute micro-nutrient sachets.
