How are we different?

Although the awareness of and response to this problem is increasing, much work remains. Solatex is unique among non-governmental organizations working on this problem because of its business model. Rather than solicit donations from the consumer, Solatex solicits industrial and commercial users of technology for surplus and salvage assets that are then sold on existing, mature secondary markets.

Why we do this

Approximately 4 billion cases of diarrhea each year cause 2.2 million deaths, mostly among children under the age of five. This is equivalent to one child dying every 15 seconds, or 20 jumbo jets crashing every day. These deaths represent approximately 15% of all child deaths under the age of five in developing countries. (World Health Organization, 2002) Other disease death, illness and lost productivity drive the total human cost even higher.

Why we do this

The typical Solatex solution involves drilling / completing the water well, setting surface equipment, setting ground storage / distribution solutions and providing training. The solution is humanitarian in its relief and environmentally sound as the donated equipment is ‘recycled’ in the secondary market and the water well is typically powered by solar panels.
