Our youth ambassadors in Nonghet selected access to water as an issue they wanted to work on. We opened up this issue to our Global Community supporters who helped us to brainstorm and research some potential solutions.
The best idea was to capture fog from the sky, and turn it into drinking water through a Fog Water Trap. We worked with online volunteers, an NGO in France called Electriciens sans frontières and our Youth Ambassadors to implement a prototype in Nonghet. A consultant came from Electriciens sans frontières to teach the Youth Ambassadors how to install a fog trap and he did a test to see if it would work. It did! We captured 50 litres of water in one night! We are now working with the Youth Ambassadors to see how we can scale this prototype up, to hopefully provide water for the entire community.
