How One Woman May Bring Safe Water to Millions


Cynthia Koenig: Wello's mission is to deliver clean water to a thirsty world. So, initially we're going to market with our water wheel, which is a water transportation tool, and then in the coming months and years we'll be adding in filtration, drip irrigation kits, even a cell phone charger that uses the rotation of the wheel to charge the battery of the cell phone, so we really see it as a platform that enables people to get access to not just clean water but other really important essentials like communication and education, and even the ability to run sustainable businesses like water delivery services, so in the long-run my vision for Wello is that it helps lift families out of the cycle of poverty.
