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 not only provides safe water for people in need, it also automatically captures its own usage data, which can be easily transmitted to a cell phone and then to a cloud-based database.
