Achieving Clean Water in the Amazon

In June 2012, a group of George Mason University (GMU) students and faculty traveled to the Amazon jungle to help an indigenous group of roughly 400 people called the Maijuna complete a water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) project. The project included teaching proper toothbrushing, hygiene and handwashing, and building bio-slowsand filters (biosand filters) for each household.
