Drinking The Sea

Clean, potable water. There is no life without it.

It is estimated that one third of the world’s population doesn’t have access to safe drinking water.

But what if we could drink from the ocean?

Historically, desalination has always been cost-prohibitive, but now, new technology is providing affordable, solar-powered desalination systems
to those who need it most.

The “Give Power Foundation” launched their first site in Kiunga, Kenya, a small fishing community near the Somalian border.

Its proximity to the ocean and abundant sunlight make it an ideal location for a solar water farm.

A twenty-foot shipping container is integrated with a custom solar powered water filtration system that transforms 75,000 liters of salty seawater into clean, drinkable water, for up to 35,000 people every day.

And this off-grid solution is viable for much longer than most ground well systems.

After suffering years of drought, Kiunga is now flourishing.

Businesses have boomed, and women and children who once spent all day hunting for clean water, are now able to work, attend school, and play.

The “Give Power Foundation” is now scaling up their efforts in dry coastal regions around the world, bringing water and new life to those that need it most.
