Access to safe drinking water is a fundamental human right.

From our water treatment plant in Burundi, we provide safe drinking water to the inhabitants of Rukobe who otherwise drink stagnant water.

How does your idea apply new technologies to make agriculture and water systems more resilient in the face of climate threats?

We have a fully automated poultry farm, equipped with modern machines. From the water treatment plant, drinking water is transferred to a carbon steel tank storage before being distributed to local community.

We are excited to learn about ideas at diverse stages of development. At what stage would you currently classify your idea as? (multiple choice)

  • Piloting: I have started to implement my finalized solution with a first set of real users.

What skills, input or guidance from the OpenIDEO community would be most helpful in building out or refining your idea?

We mainly need your support in terms of additional capital in order to scale up the project. After that we can define in which area's OpenIdeo could intervene to empower our personnel and our recipients.

This idea emerged from:

From myself together with the beneficiaries.

Tell us about your work experience:

I possess a comprehensive knowledge in different industries, ranging from the Poultry industry, oil industry to printing technology via telecommunication. The companies I worked for include Kanon Loading Equipment BV, Canon Europe Ltd, Sykes Enterprises INC. BV. I served at both management and customer service level. I am a person who dares make decisions and I am endowed with great perseverance. I am social and a team player, goal and task-oriented, with an eye on the profitability of what I do. I speak six languages including Dutch, English and French, and I possess excellent computer skills.

I would like to know more of your idea. We buy ($50 USD) a chlorine producer which is a plastic funnel attached to a 12 volt motorcycle battery and through which measured amounts of water and salt are poured 5 time. Each small batch is sufficient for so many houses for up to 6 weeks. We have people bring a water or soda bottle and we give them a month's supply (1st Friday or Sunday of the month) out of village mosks and churches. The people are taught how to use so many drops per container - and to wait 20 minutes after the pure chlorine is added. Straight, it was used during the Ebola breakout in Western Africa and has been tested and used globally. I can send you info if you want to get something like this from my source. Since I am in Kagera Region, Tz, we are very close to each other since you are in Burundi. When this challenge ends, feel free to contact me via my email: uitsca7@gmail.com. I also would like to know more about what you do so we can grow our knowledge and skill base too. Thanks, Carolee Uits

Dear Carolee Uits,
Thank you for sharing your idea. It sounds innovative, and I trust we can achieve more if we combine our efforts, as you said. I have added more information on my idea, take time and go through it. You can also consult my old post on my project CHICKEN ALL LTD that you can find on this platform. We will then evaluate the areas of collaboration on both our ideas. As you suggested, I would love to receive more information about your project.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
