Kenya, Mar 08 (Canadian-Media): Give Power is one of the most active non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that are trying to fight for access to clean water with their main mission to install solar power technology that can help the communities get access to clean water, media reports said.

Before the installation of Give Power, the inhabitants of Kiunga had to travel one hour each day to reach a water source which was used also by animals and full of parasites leading to spread of diseases and dehydration in very hot and rural areas.
Kenya and the village named Kiunga, managed to install a solar-powered desalination system to transforms ocean water into drinkable water and can produce around 70 thousand liters of water, sufficient for 35 people per day.
Desalination is a process which required lots of energy to separate salt and minerals from the water through a membrane to which many chemicals had been added.
An alternative solution to this problem was found by Give Power through their solar water farms by the use of solar panels, Tesla batteries, and water pumps.
Another advantage offered by this technology is that the final product is free of saline residues which pollute the environment.
Initiatives like Give Power are a boon to 2.2 billion people around the world who do not have access to drinking water and 4.2 billion can’t access safely managed sanitation services, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
