Our pitch:

PROBLEM:

Over 1 billion people globally do not have access to clean,safe drinking water;a large population of that figure is located in Developing Countries

Millions of women and children spend several  hours each day collecting water from distant and polluted sources,the time it takes to walk the average 3.7 miles for clean water is time not spent working at an income­-generating job,caring for family members,or attending school.

At any given time,half of the world’s hospital beds are occupied by patients suffering from diseases associated with lack of access to clean water;sadly 3.4 million people die each year from scarce and contaminated water sources

 

SOLUTION:

Our Solution is DIGITAPS :an intelligent water Automated Treatment Machine(ATM) that solves some of the major water borne diseases by of providing clean and sustainable water supply in the developing countries.

Its a Turnkey System that is portable and powered by Solar.The System takes in water from any source and using an ultra filtration technique if purity the water and makes available healthy for Consumption

DIGITAP is a single product that combines four elements essential to smarter water management

Filtration:Where unhygienic water is purified for consumption

-Digitap Dispenser-An Automatic and Digital way for clients to fetch water

Biometrics/ Smart cards -Where water credits are store and user use it to access clean water

Water Management System-where data from transactions and operations are processed and published remotely.

 

Digitap Changing the World:

There are no examples of communities that have eliminated poverty without first solving their scarce and contaminated water issues.

DIGITAP will be a leading piece of technology in the fight against poverty through water filtration and purification.

1. Create Economic Independence:Communities and individuals with water can now grow healthier crops,go to school,and become industrious,saving time for themselves that was once spent fetching water from great distances. 

2. Improve Health : A clean water treatment machine is superior to an open water source because it prevents a breeding ground for mosquitoes and eliminates malaria. Plus,gastrointestinal diseases from open water sources can be reduced to nearly zero.

3. In the face of a natural disaster,the difference between life and death is immediate access to clean water.The Digitap can be quickly create or rebuild destroyed water points.

4. Increases School Attendance Girls are able to attend school and receive a proper education when they are no longer obligated to fetch water during the day. When water is available,these same girls can stay clean during their menstrual cycles and not be forced to miss school.

6. Creates Sustainable Jobs The low cost and robust nature of the DIGITAPS allows entrepreneurs to create a viable Vendor business that was nearly impossible with other an Automated Dispensing System. It can be owned, managed, and maintained by local entrepreneurs.

By creating access to clean water to literally millions of people,we can enable prosperity to take hold.Water makes every other humanitarian project better. In most developing regions,there is not a lack of water,just a lack of access.

The key barriers for our solution:

The Major barrier we are facing is the cost of the materials needed to Produce this device, 90% of the parts are imported and the cost the importation is High which in the long run may affect our pricing.
