The Origin of the Idea

This project began with a simple question. Why? Why do one billion people around the world lack access to clean drinking water and why do 2.4 million people die every year from unclean water-related issues? There is no answer for why, but there is a way to solve it.  

My idea is to make a desalination device for people around the world who don't have access to clean and safe water. This device will draw salt out of water and filter out anything that pollutes the water and makes it unsafe for drinking.  It will be small, portable, easy to use and hopefully will transform people's lives. 

My goal for this project will be to make a prototype and maybe even send it to people in need, if I can find an organization to donate to. But for right now I am going to focus on the research and building of my design.
