This Solar Water Farm In Kenya Provides Clean Water For 35,000 People

This solar-powered desalination system in Kenya produces up to 20,000 gallons of clean water per day.

The project by GivePower Foundation, a non-profit, provides pure drinkable water through desalination. The first project completed in Kiunga, Kenya can now deliver clean water for up to 35,000 people every single day.



After years of droughts, the residents of Kiunga were forced to drink contaminated and unhealthy water that they had to walk for up to an hour each way. Thanks to GivePower, they don’t have to anymore.

The process involves harvesting solar energy to produce up to 50 kilowatts of energy to power the water pumps that operate around the clock, turning seawater into safe drinkable water.

Compared to most traditional water wells, GivePower solar water farm produces a higher quality of water over a longer period — powered by renewable energy and delivered sustainably and affordably.

A donation of just $20 provides one person clean drinking water for an entire decade. Please visit givepower.org.
