Alex Durán, Omer Morante, Jenifer Colpas – Agua Grata
Alex Durán, Omer Morante, Jenifer Colpas are the founders of the project, Agua Grata, located on the north coast of Colombia. The project benefits rural communities that do not have access to basic water, energy, and sanitation services. There are 833 million people in the world who do not have access to drinking water, which causes serious health problems, such as malnutrition in children less than 5 years of age. Agua Grata, provides safe water through filters that use an ultrafiltration membrane system. They want all people to have access to drinking water, because water is everyone’s right. With the Pollination Project grant, the organizers will be able to purchase water filters and provide transportation to the community.
