Issue We Are Addressing Lack of clean drinking water in Africa – Specifically Zambia and Tanzania Takes hours to gather water that isn’t even clean – Women and children mainly collect the water Unclean drinking water causes numerous problems – Illness, poverty, struggling economy
Our Idea Provide clean water to people Partnerships to help us – Zambikes, IDEO What it is: – Water filter system utilizing bicycles and an attachable cart that filters water as the rider pedals
How the Filter Mechanically Works The filter works by engaging as the rider pedals – a pump that is attached to the pedal crank will draw water from the dirty container into the clean tank. The clutch will engage and disengage the drive belt from the pedal crank. This will enable the rider to filter the water either while traveling or by being stationary. The clean tank is removable for drinking.
Who Will Benefit? Residents – Women, children main beneficiaries – Men will be healthier, can work longer Economy – Healthier workers, more buying power because we will create jobs
Financials Partner with Zambikes – Avoid overhead costs and startup costs – Have local knowledge and rapport About $50 for materials – Pump, water filter, other items Employ locals
