A possible future solution to the water AND employment problems?

Potters for Peace has a design for a ceramic water filter, developed at Creative Machines, that may be manufactured locally in the village.  This portable press, which may be carried in a checkable piece of luggage, may help with filtering drinking water.  Once a small factory is build it may employ people who could then sell the low-cost filters to other villages.

While the project is some ways away from being able to take this on, it may be a good option for the future!
