Evidence Action scales evidence-based and cost-effective programs to reduce the burden of poverty for hundreds of millions of people. Our approach fills the gap between research about what works and solutions for people in need. We operate in seven countries across the globe and positively impact the lives of hundreds of millions of people every year in a measurable way. In rural parts of low-income countries, most water sources are untreated, meaning that water is not safe to drink directly from the source. Our uniquely-engineered chlorine dispensers are installed next to commonly-used water sources, enabling people to treat their water using a safe and pre-measured dose of chlorine. The chlorine stays active for 2-3 days, ensuring water doesn’t get recontaminated even when stored at home. Adding diluted chlorine to water is a WHO-endorsed approach to improving water quality. In fact, water systems the world over routinely chlorinate water, making it safe to drink.
