It is estimated that there are 2.2 billion children in the world and 1 billion of those are directly affected by poverty and hunger, because of this I was motivated to develop the Kawsay Food Kit. Kawsay means living in Aymara, one of Bolivia's native languages.

This kit will be a distribution container meant to make food distribution in impoverished rural areas of the world more human, personal and much more effective than the current solutions. It will be a low cost & biodegradable production intended to combat unhygienic food storage and promote long term solutions.

This concept is currently in the prototyping phase & requires YOUR help to make it a reality. As an Industrial Designer I've tested almost every aspect of the functionality of this container but more in-depth, infield testing is also necessary.

Together we can change the lives of those in need.







Se estima que hay 2.2 billones de niños en el mundo y 1 billón están directamente afectados por pobreza y hambruna, es por esto que decidí desarrollar Kit de distribución de comida Kawsay. Que se traduce directamente a "vivir" en Aymara, lengua nativa de Bolivia.

Este kit será un contenedor de comida para mejorar la distribución en áreas rurales afectadas por pobreza. Se propone hacer la distribución mas humana, personal y mucho mas efectiva que las soluciones de hoy en día. Será una produccion de bajo costo y biodegradable, intentando fomentar la higiene en el almacenamiento de alimentos y promover soluciones a largo plazo.

Actualmente este concepto esta en la etapa de prototipo y requiere TU ayuda para hacerla realidad. Como Diseñador Industrial he comprobado todo aspecto de la funcionalidad de este contenedor pero se requieren mas tests.

Juntos podemos cambiar las vidas de los mas necesitados.

Yesterday, a 12 year old approaches me and says..."is it true that children are dying that fast?" My reply was...unfortunately, it is our reality and not many people are doing much about it. Immediately he hands me $10 Dollars and says "I don't have a credit card or anything to pay online, use it for your idea and don't stop until your successful"

Thank you Charles.
