[/su_tab][su_tab title=”Workshop Content”]

Workshop Description:

We are planning to raise money and put water purifying tanks at rural areas of Perú. What is special about our tank is we use nutshells, which are an activated carbon. Activated carbon helps at removing germs. Plus, we have a net in our tank that can catch any junk that comes with the water. After the water has been in the tank for a while, it’s much safer to drink. We hope they learn how to create their own mini filters so they can take action in their own country.
