Biosand Filter App Released

We are proud to share that our client, a Calgary-based non-profit called CAWST (The Centre for Affordable Water & Sanitation Technology), has recently released a portion of the “Biosand Filter Videos”  to the public.

The current release includes animated interactive HTML5 web-animations in an app designed for 3 main regions: English and French speaking Africa, and the Caribbean. The low file size and responsiveness of the app are ideal for phone and tablet use.  There are 9 chapters for each region which demonstrate the use and maintenance of the biosand filter which is for removing pathogens from drinking water.  CAWST’s objective is to provide well-researched training to practitioners of the biosand filter so it is effective and safe.

Currently, plans are to release localized versions for the following regions in English: South Asia, South East Asia, South West Asia; and a version for Latin America in Spanish.

Compelling “story” videos for each region are in the works and will eventually be integrated into the app. They take a dramatic approach to the topic and are meant to inspire the audience to learn about and setup a biosand filter for their own families. The videos have been beautifully illustrated and designed so we are looking forward to their eventual release.
