Solvatten – Solar powered Jerry Cans for portable drinking water in Kenya and other African countires.
Water is a luxury many cannot afford. As ridiculous as this may sound, it is true. Over a billion people in the world lack access to water, 844 million people cannot access safe water and are exposed to diseases such as cholera and typhoid, and a total of 2.7 billion experience water scarcity for at least a month a year. This is why a Swedish social enterprise invented Solvatten, a combined portable water treatment and water heater system that comes in form of a solar-powered jerry can.
