Not just a technology
UpWater is a research and development project that endeavors to achieve safe drinking water and health betterment for people in under-resourced communities. Our team has developed a breakthrough water-treatment innovation that is effective, affordable, safe, and simple. But we know that the technology alone is not enough to create a meaningful and sustainable impact. Thus, in addition to the technological innovation, UpWater also comprises a community-oriented educational campaign to induce social transformation around safe drinking water practices and a business plan to distribute the products through fair and sustainable local market-based mechanisms, rather than giving away the products for free. We see safe drinking water as a steppingstone to improvement of people's health in the long term.
