In a world where a child dies every 15 seconds from diseases associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene, Thirst-Ed's goal is to make knowledge of household water treatment and proper hygiene as common as how to cook rice or fry an egg. Thirst-Ed promotes education and knowledge as the principal tools for safe-water intervention, inspiring the drive for improved water quality to come from within the community prior to the introduction of safe-water technologies.

We visited Curt and Cathy Bradner of Thirst Aid and some of the water filter factories in Burma last year, and we believe this is an exceptional program. They are both gifted in engineering, and in finding practical solutions. They are also gifted at finding local people who share their goals, and training these people, and then giving them responsibility for the program.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

visiting some of the sites where they were making ceramic water filters in Burma. We met the people working with them, and saw how careful they were about quality control and education.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Traveling with Curt and Cathy Bradner. They are caring, capable, and a lot of fun. They have great ideas, like training bike medics as a variation of an English class at Dr. Cynthia's.
