OUR SOLUTION

In rural regions of Africa, women and children walk 6 kilometers a day in order to collect water, often a limited amount, on their heads, that causes health problems and lack of productivity. Our product takes this everyday task and turns it to a more efficient, easy and rewarding process, as rural citizens can transport their water while also generating enough electricity to charge a cell phone or turn on a light bulb. They don’t need to work for our product, our product works for them. There is also room for expansion and scaling of the product, as this technology can be adapted to a variety of needs depending on the user’s region.
