We propose a circulation shower that saves 90% on water and energy. Families can shower endlessly with only a bucket of water. Our idea is to make an Africa-proof version of the circulation shower - a proven concept. This idea has already been deployed in the Netherlands and is ready to be deployed quickly on a large scale. By making circulation showers available to all families, schools and other public institutions, ...more »
Lake Victoria is the largest fresh water source in the Africa. In the western part of Kenya, it is also the largest free water source and also in the whole of Kenya. Along its shores is majorly occupied by fishermen, which means it is not only a water source but also a main source of income to thousands of people in Kenya. However, there lies a very big risk and exists a series of water borne diseases in this region. ...more »
I saw this link today. A book that educates and filters water very cheaply.
An Australian company, F-Cubed has designed a magnificent portable Solar Water Purification and DESALINATION plant that has no mechanical parts or filters to change.
Simply pour in water in the one end and clean water comes out the other side... up to 20 liters a day can be desalinated.
In most parts of Africa there are no installed portable water systems. In a case of emergency or in these remote areas where instalaton of a water plant is difficult, because of technical limitations, surface water filtration systems are a viable option. The LifeStraw® Personal, for example, is a portable water filter which can be carried for easy access to safe and clean drinking water. This water filtration system ...more »
The goal of this project is to provide safe drinking water to over 100,000 people in Districts in Liberia. Many citizens in Liberia especially in the villages can’t access safe drinking water and are drinking dirty water and running creeks water. This was as a result of the Fourteen (14) years of devastating civil crisis that broke down the nation’s entire infrastructures. The project to be funded contains Rehabilitation ...more »
I believe since all water goes to the ocean we can establish ways of reintroducing it back to the land,purify it then put into the water grid as good,pure cleaning water for use in Africa
It is an idea of water sedimentation and purification.
purification of water
Designed by Jonathan Liow, a graduate student at Monash University, the Solar Ball is a spherical shaped device that utilizes the power of the sun to purify water. Inspired by a trip to Cambodia, Liow sought to aid underdeveloped populations that lack access to clean drinking water. When placed in the sun, the Solarball uses evaporation to separate dirt and contaminants. The resulting condensations yields just over three ...more »
The Sun Cloth and Wind purification tank is a very simple and affordable way of treating water. A lot of people exposed to unclean water in Africa have limited monetary resources. Therefore people can take advantage of the Sun Cloth and Wind purification tank that makes efficient use of two free abundant resources in Africa which are sunlight and wind energy. The dark plastic container mounted on a roof stand is an efficient ...more »
The efficacy of Moringa Olefeira in water treatment (mainly disinfection and removal of turbidity) is well documented. However, pilots of its practical application have been limited to household uses. My idea is to establish a research unit within a University or a Water Treatment Plant or Uganda Industrial Research Institute, that will seek to find solutions to the following: 1. Technical feasibility of use of Moringa ...more »
