What We're About

EOS International is a nonprofit social enterprise that empowers rural families in Central America with access to safe water and opportunities to generate income through simple technology solutions and education.
Over 85% of Central Americans do not have access to safe drinking water as their water sources are contaminated with bacteria, causing harmful health issues in the population, particularly children. With a comprehensive approach, EOS provides cost-effective safe drinking water solutions at the community level. EOS’ three-step approach includes water quality testing and analysis, community water treatment, and an ongoing chlorine tablet distribution. We provide ongoing assistance, evaluation, and chlorine tablet supply to all of our rural communities through an established network of 50 franchised chlorine distribution points throughout Nicaragua and Honduras. All solutions are locally-operated and require co-financing from all involved. Our program demonstrates that for just pennies a day-per person-we could dramatically reduce the incidence of waterborne disease and save lives. An independent study created by the Nicaraguan Ministry of Health showed a 61% reduction of reported cases of diarrheal diseases in communities where EOS has a presence. EOS’ scalable model has reached over 1,000 communities in Central America, providing clean water to over 500,000 people.
