Drinking Water Treatment Project

Timor Foundation promotes this initiative aiming at improving quality of life for children in schools Timor-Leste. Our goal is to increase the health standards of the population and to protect the environment, no more waste of plastic bottles!

                      We are seeking funds for 10 Schools: each school USD 11,000


The Mission
Clean drinking water is essential for life and for the functioning of every society. Timor Foundation is committed to improve the water situation, especially for the younger population. More than 1,500 schools have no access to clean drinkable water. More than 100,000 students and children walk every day several hours to the schools and have no chance to be served with drinkable water.
For schools with water tanks or a water source, but still no access to clean drinkable water, we can offer our technology. In this moment we want make and bring a difference. We installed in the last two years Trunz water machines in Water shops which produce drinkable water with a packing systems called bag-in-box. The Water shops can support schools in a small radius around them.

Timor Foundation believes that, combining both state-of-the-art technology and education to exploit it, represents a success factor for the Timorese population.  

The Solution
In order to improve the quality standards, the introduction of the Trunz TWM light machine represents our solution: it is a unit that transforms available municipal water into clean drinkable water. Trunz TWM light is equipped with a three-filtration procedure, which removes even small particles and almost all the known viruses and bacteria. This unit is equipped with an ultra-filtration membrane, a system to backflush the membrane, and an activated carbon filter to remove smell and odors from the water. This process keeps the natural minerals in the source water.

The maintenance costs are limited in amount and the service life much longer when compared to conventional filtration systems. Extremely helpful for remotely located schools, Trunz TWM light does not require any power supply. The Team from our partner Scope Asia Timor LDA in Timor-Leste is able to support the installations and to serve in any kind of maintenance issues.
