I2SP: Clean Water from Air using Renewable Energy

Donation protected
"I could be doing more." In late 2019, these five words inspirited me to allocate my efforts into a project with real purpose, one in which I could help underprivileged children and their families.  Below I share my mission.

We could all be doing more.  With that I ask you this: Would you be willing to help in any way?  Every penny counts.❤️
Water is transformative.

Its availability is a determinant of life or death, and even so we see 2.2 billion people globally living without access to a safe source of drinking water.  Lack of access to potable water is a global crisis that has afflicted communities for years, and we're unfortunately seeing an exacerbation of water scarcity in these latter years due to rapid population growth, increased pollution, overexploitation of natural resources, intensified climate change, and unsustainable energy production and industrial practices.  Further, the degree of inequity surrounding this issue is unsettling and simply unacceptable.  Due to geographic, sociocultural, and economic disparities, developing nations often do not have access to clean water sources nor the capital and resources needed to maintain water sustainability; therefore, they are faced with predispositions for hunger and malnutrition, disease contraction, educational deprivation, gender inequality, sustained indigence, and death.  In fact, 827,000 people in low- and middle-income countries die due to inadequate water, sanitation, and hygiene annually.

The impact of this crisis is unbounded.  With 2.0 billion people restricted to access to only drinking water contaminated with feces, we see the onset of a myriad of heath degradations attributed to poor water sanitation, notably increased risk for contraction of potentially fatal diseases such as diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid, and polio.  This number is astronomically high, but it is not fixed.  At the end of the day, we are empowered to make a difference; whether we choose to unlock this empowerment, however, is up to the individual.  

Everything is a choice.  I can choose to share with you that 480,000 children under the age of 5 die annually from diarrhoea—the majority occurring in sub-Saharan Africa & South Asia—or I can choose to share with you that this number is a 60% reduction from the year 2000.  My choice is optimism, and my choice is resolve because together we can provide sustainability, foster hope, and improve health.  Together we can make a difference.  All you have to do is choose to be a part of it.

COVID-19 Impact:
According to USAID, the current global pandemic has exacerbated water scarcity conditions in sub-Saharan Africa & other developing countries around the world.  Water security is more essential now than it has ever been before due to the strong correlation between clean water, sanitation, & hygiene and the eradication of the COVID-19 epidemic.

What is I2SP?
International Innovative Solutions Project, Inc. (otherwise known as I2SP) 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.

Big Problems Require Big Solutions. This Is Ours:
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.  

We plan to employ Watergen's medium scale atmospheric water generator, Gen-M.  Gen-M generates a maximum of 800 L (176 G) of pure water daily.  A built-in reservoir and treatment facility continuously circulates the water as it’s produced to preserve freshness.  An integrated optimization energy module even optimizes water production in accordance with changes in climate, geography, and weather, enabling the equipment to function in a wide range of environments, including the climate of Turkana County, Kenya. 

By installing a solar-powered microgrid system in this remote area, we can power Gen-M indefinitely, providing the community with an essentially unlimited clean water supply.  The equipment requires no infrastructure and will undergo testing on the grounds of the renowned Turkana Basin Institute Turkwel Research Facility in Turkana County, Kenya prior to its relocation to a nearby village.

The World Health Organization predicts that nearly 50% of the global population will live in water-stressed areas by 2025 if we don’t undergo drastic reform.  It is critical that we devote certain efforts to amelioration of this crisis before it escalates to a point where it becomes unmanageable and irremediable.  The time to act has always been and will continue to be now.
