Osun State, Nigeria
The factory in Nigeria was initiated in August, 2013 due to the efforts of Ibukunoluwa Ayoola (IBK), in Nigeria, a master potter, and members of Potters Water Action Group (PWAG) from Pittsburgh, PA. After arranging for the delivery of filter molds and press, members of PWAG visited IBK in August, 2013 and began making filters. Since then PWAG has provided ongoing financial support and technical assistance with the help of the Ceramic Water Filter Training Center. IBK has visited Pittsburgh and the Training Center several times for further training and technical assistance.
