Track outcomes, not outputs
As little as 5% of water purifiers distributed in acute emergencies are used correctly. This is a poor outcome for the recipients, and a troubling statistic for funders. The problem persists because there is little data on usage, and the data that exists is unreliable and costly to collect.
PotaVida presents a revolutionary new concept: accurate data from every device in the field. The Smart Solar Purifier automatically collects its own usage data, which can be easily transmitted to a cell phone and then to a cloud-based database.
