is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to utilize innovative technology to provide humanitarian aid to underprivileged communities who lack access to the resources required to provide essential health and human services.
Lack of access to safe drinking water is a global crisis that has persisted for years and is only increasing in prevalence with population growth, resource depletion, and climate change. We aim to combat water scarcity and provide hope & health to impoverished individuals in the Turkana Basin region of Kenya, Africa through the installation of a solar-powered microgrid that would power Watergen’s atmospheric water generator, so Watergen’s GENius heat-exchange technology can efficiently and economically extract water vapor from the air and condense it into clean drinking water.
Kenya is a developing nation, meaning it encompasses a profusion of communities of low socioeconomic standing. These communities often do not have access to potable water sources and therefore are faced with predispositions for hunger and malnutrition, disease contraction, educational deprivation, gender inequality, sustained indigence, and death.
We can mitigate this impact—but first, we are going to need your help! Please support us in our efforts to provide water sustainability through atmospheric water generation by making a donation. 100% of received charitable donations will go towards funding of this project.
Diarrhoea is one of the leading killers of children. In fact, the cohort which makes up the majority of diarrhoeal deaths includes children under the age of 2 in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
It’s important that we remain sanguine, though, for this number has decreased by nearly 60% since the year 2000. Only through intervention and a continuous effort to improve poor water sanitation and hygiene can we continue to bring this number down. Let’s keep saving lives.
These individuals are at greater risk for contracting potentially fatal diseases caused by poor water sanitation such as diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid, and polio.
Sharp geographic, sociocultural, and economic inequalities persist on an international scale; the communities with less access to improved sources of drinking water have the highest levels of malnutrition and disease and big disparities in wealth.
Women and girls will often routinely undergo long or risky journeys to collect water. The time and physical effort they put into these arduous journeys endanger their health and detract from their abilities to be productive in other ways.
