Water & Sanitation
Below are Water Solutions that have been developed and deployed around the world to provide man’s most basic need — safe water to drink and abundant water to grow food:
New Life International is a Christian outreach organization dedicated to providing safe water to the world. New Life distributes a simple, patented water purifier that uses common table salt and a 12 volt battery to create chlorine to disinfect water.
One purifier can potentially serve an entire village at a cost as low as a penny per day per person. Over the past 7 years, more than 1,000 water purifiers are in operation in 58 countries around the world. To learn more about New Life, click here.

Small-scale commercial farming can be a very profitable business in Africa, but it is difficult without irrigation. Since 1996, KickStart has been the leader in micro-irrigation technologies through the development and sales of its popularly known series of manually operated “MoneyMaker” pumps. KickStart is adding new pumps to the MoneyMaker line and continues to develop other money making micro-irrigation technologies. To learn more about KickStart, click here.
