It's a Century

Before we left India we set our program director, Ramachandra, up with a computer, internet access, and a digital camera. He has been wonderful about sending us e-mail at least once a week and an occasional picture or two. It is a real treat for us and a necessity so we can keep tabs on the operations of the workshop.

We received an e-mail on December 31st telling us that the total number of water filters manufactured had reached the “century” mark. At that time there had been 102 filters manufactured, 17 delivered to families, 16 ready to be delivered, and the rest either curing or being painted. We are impressed! They have several molds in use now and more being manufactured so that means the production rate is still on the increase.
