Kathy Ku, a young college student, spent the summer of 2010 in Uganda and was struck by how many people around her were getting sick from dirty water. Seeing that these diseases could be prevented, she knew there was a better way. SPOUTS was created in 2011 with the simple idea that ceramic water filters could be made and sold locally, providing an amazingly effective product through a sustainable business model.
