How many people lack access to drinking-water ? Have you ever pondered!
Water is an incredibly important issue but unfortunately, this is often not recognised – neither by international leaders, nor by national policy makers.Tragedy doesn't ends here further. There are many reigons where even water is not available. If available its not drinkable. If drinkable, flood makes it unfit (open water sources get polluted, hand pumps get submerged etc.). Not only floods there are other natural as well as human made systems that makes them unusable.
This scenario is not only for India, but in many other countries too, around the globe. According to the United nations, 884 million people around the world do not have access to clean and safe drinking water. And we aim to solve this drinking problem with combination of recent development in cleaning technology with the old technology(hand pump).
Generally hand pump is used for underground water but our hand pump won't be constrained to it. It can also be used on any stagnant / running water system like ponds(clear/dirty), lakes, river etc. Even this system can be modified for sea water. If possible we are also planning to generate very small scale of power generation as byproduct from this hand pump.
In flood reigon the supply of fresh water to the people caught in flood is difficult. Even if the supply of packed water is made its limited in resource. Inspite of having water all around they can't drink it as its unfit. Instead of supplying packed water if they get our pump it will help them as it works on almost all type of water source.
