One of our ongoing projects is to cover water shortages in areas where accessibility of clean water or drinking water is critical. We are therefore committing ourselves to provide means to reach water resources in any possible way. A suggested method that we would like to use for helping these affected people is the use of an apparatus that can extract potable drinking water directly from the air. Together with the use of solar power, it can generate water continuously 24 hours and help many displaced people living in arid and drylands.
With the collaboration of local residents, authorities, organizations and any individual who wants to volunteer we would like that our reach out provides clean water to everyone and to as many as possible. We would also like to maximize people's readiness in response to sudden disease counteract such as water cholera where the need for good hygiene and household water treatment is great.
This project aims to increase the number of individuals and families living in though and dried-land areas that are using electric stoves to cook their food daily and reduce their need to collect dried woods and branches to prepare the fire. The electricity for these stoves will be collected from the sun with the help of solar panels.
The cutting of trees is closely related to the need for firewood. They are then turned into charcoal and sold in overseas markets. This problem has increased dramatically in the latest periods and has become the number one problem for local authorities in many countries around the globe. Trees are natural resources that are very dear to all of us living on this planet by cutting them we would not only contributing to the release of poisonous gases into the air we breathe in but also to the deterioration of the soil and propagation of wastelands.
The project is divided into two steps. In each one of these steps, monitoring and evaluation processes will be carried out following closely the workflow and making sure that the objectives of the project are reached.
The objectives of this first step are:
The main objective of this step is:
Training and building of reparation station so as to become self-sustaining
In this project we will be working with the following objectives:
Desalination of seawater is when the water of the sea is purified from sodium and any other substance that may potentially cause deterioration of the water such as minerals, sand, chemicals or even waste. The method that is used in this process is called reverse osmosis which is when letting seawater diffuse (penetrate) through a thin membrane that only allows freshwater to pass through. Living organisms such as humans, animals, and plants use this type of diffusion in their body, but it goes in the opposite direction and is known as osmosis. Normally osmosis occurs naturally without the need for any kind of energy from the outside that creates pressures on the water to make it flow through the thin membrane however, the reverse osmosis does need energy and in this process, high-pressure pumps are used to create a leveraging force on the seawater so that is can pass through the membrane to the freshwater side. But before that, the seawater has to go through several processes that will remove large particles such as sand, mud, seaweed, etc.. This is accomplished by letting the seawater running through special tankers containing multilayered granulated materials in other case micro filtering or other types of filtration is used to pretreat the water before it arrives at its second phase of filtration. This project is currently under development. More updates will be added soon.
