I'm a university student undertaking a degree in Mechanical Engineering in Kenya. A quiet but bold person who's passionate on developing ideas that are geared towards conserving the environment, energy and developing solutions for communities.
Good initiative Okumu. People are the best solution to people problems. Your CHV's will actually benefit a lot from our portable coolers, not sure how they go around the problem now but you can always guide us i refining our concept.
We haven't produced a working model as we are still in the prototype part of it but I believe communities will be able to benefit from easier and faster access to vaccines. In countries like ours (Kenya). Vaccines are available only at certain medical points as such either the people have to walk miles for vaccines or the care givers walk for miles to the people both of which slow down the rate of their absorption in the market. A portable cooler ensures that care givers can carry all their vaccines at once rather than moving back and forth to refill their supplies while communities can get vaccination services at the point of residences.
