Examples of some of the "needs" for which SOWTech have developed innovative designs and products are given below.

Why Aid and Development?

Sanitation is just one of the big unsolved issus in developing countries and in Aid situations. Inadequate or more often non-existent sanitation can cause more deaths than disease or the initial disaster.
