LifeStraw’s programs also teach health hygiene and sanitation practices and provide continuous follow-up and education utilizing full time local in-country staff. LifeStraw also works with non-profit, government and international organizations all over the world to enable individuals, families and communities to access safe drinking water through the provision of LifeStraw products, and safe water education.
