SafeSIPP is a more-than-profit venture simultaneously solving three problems facing rural communities in the developing world: transportation, purification, and storage of drinking water. SafeSIPP has integrated a three-phase water purification system into a barrel that activates as the barrel rolls across the ground. SafeSIPP will sell to non-profit organizations and social enterprises that have established connections and relationships with rural communities. Through the use of the purification system, a platform for micro-financing by selling additional purified water in the rural communities will be established.
Each trip with SafeSIPP provides drinking water for a family of four for five days. In addition, SafeSIPP reduces the travel time to and from the source by 75%. Families will be able to attain additional water that can be sold to surrounding communities and local business as purified drinking water or to grow fresh produce. This will stimulate the economy in the developing world. Access to clean drinking water will promote community development, education, and agriculture. Instead of spending their days obtaining water, children will be able to receive an education and women will be able to start their own businesses or engage in the workforce.
Through our sustainable business model, SafeSIPP will increase the annual family income by 25%. This income can be used towards the future purchase of additional SafeSIPP systems and replacement filters as well as a profit for individuals to invest in their future.
