This is IBOTA
small-scale & local
simple and affordable
Established in 1997
The IBOTA (International Bridge Of Technical Assistance) Foundation was established in 1997, after founder Peter Koelewijn was struck in India by the great need for clean and safe drinking water.
In the slums of Calcutta
Part of the production of the water filters is done in Calcutta (Kolkata), India. This is being done as an employment project in the slums of this metropolis. In this way underprivileged people contribute to a solution for a worldwide problem: clean drinking water!
IBOTA mainly works with volunteers, which means that 95% of the funds are used directly for the projects.
Vision and objective
Making resources available for drinking water treatment in developing areas and emergencies, including in collaboration with local partners.
To provide underprivileged people in developing countries with the opportunity to be involved in the manufacture of products in order to provide for their own livelihood.
