Solar water pasteurization and cooking

Solar Water Pasteurizer in Action

Solar water pasteurizer in MadagascarThe solar water pasteurizers have been accepted well by the community. Zahana has a few solar water pasteurizers per village and they are being used in the schools for and by the school children. In our second village (Fiarenana) the only well with water all year round has recently been dug in the schoolyard. Safe drinking water remains an issue when using ground water. The teacher uses the solar water pasteurizer to make the water safe to drink for his students. He stores the bottles with pasteurized water in a shelf in the classroom to cool down to room temperature. As one girl told us: "If I get thirsty I just get up and walk over to the shelf and drink water out of the bottles. I can do this any time I want."
