Road trip for Election Campaign in Kenya

 

As part of the election campaign of Mr. Peter Shehe for Member of Parliament representing the province of Ganze in Kenya, Tomash International Ltd., organized a road trip with Peter Shehe. Peter Shehe's goal was to show the inhabitants of remote villages how to purify contaminated water with the mobile Trunz Water System (TWS 200). 

 

Difficult access to the villages was one of the challenges we had to manage on the trip. But thanks to the solar power supply and the ruggedness of the purification unit, we managed to produce clean drinking water out of any surface water source  found during the trip. Within the short time of two weeks we visited a series of villages and offered water to hundreds of persons. Numerous villagers joined the demonstration of the Trunz Water Systems unit and tasted the fresh water. A reason to celebrate!  

 

 

Take a look at our new video and see our mobile and solar-powered water purification system in action! The safe water solution for remote areas!

 

 

 

 

Diani Children’s Village : access to clean drinking water

In many areas in Kenya, access to clean drinking water is lacking. About 88% of the population has to put back long distances to the next water source or is forced to drink contaminated water. Particularly children suffer from water borne diseases.

For the first time an environment-friendly and independent water treatment plant of Trunz Water Systems offers a long-lasting solution for decentralized potable water supply in Kenya.  Children’s village, which is situated some 35 km south of Mombasa and currently houses 22 children and their staff, is familiar with the problem of contaminated water. 

The Diani children’s home the staff cares for the basic needs of the orphans and neglected or abandoned children. It includeds the improvement of the Children’s health, for example by providing clean drinking water for daily needs. For demonstration of the effectiveness of germ-free drinking water, the official dealer of Trunz Water Systems, Tomash International Ltd, installed its water trailer equipped with a Trunz Water System 200 at disposal to the children’s village. 

The water treatment plant mounted on a trailer is powered by renewable energy and operates independent of any power source. Solar panels and a wind generator produce enough energy to operate the water treatment plant. The plant supplies the children’s village sufficiently with drinking water and has a capacity of 15'000 liters of drinking water per day. 

In order to provide local inhabitants access to clean drinking water, a small Water-Shop has been opened. The local population can buy drinking water for two Kenyan shillings (KSE) per litre. This is approx. 1 cent per litre. It is about ten times cheaper than the currently lowest price for water which can be bought in 20 litre-tanks in stores. One Quarter of the Water-Shop earnings (0.5 KES/Litre) is being reinvested in  the children’s education, for example in school fees. 

The plant generates enough energy, on the one hand to operate the water system and on the other hand to illuminate the security lights in the children’s village.
