Transcript of Water and Poverty Summit 2014

Our problem is located in Delhi, India. The population of Delhi is 17,838,842 and the area is 16,609 square miles. Delhi's summer starts in April with temperatures around 90 deg F. Sometimes there are heat waves that can reach up to 114 deg F. In the winter, Delhi is well known for heavy fog. In December it is harder to see and so fog causes dangers such as disruption of road, air, and traffic.
People in Delhi have access to water but it is not clean. India's government has entitled a law leading toward wholesale privatization of water delivery and sanitation. People also die of the lack of clean water and poor sanitation.
Scientists say.....
Not so fun facts......
So you get a better picture...
Please help the people of Delhi, India. Dirty water is equal to poor sanitation. Every 47 minutes a child in India dies because the lack of clean water. Every 4 1/2 hours an adult dies in India due to the lack of clean drinking water. The people of Delhi are counting on us to make a difference. Help us save lives.

Delhi, India
2. The problem.
We will use the Biosand filter to purify the water in 111 schools with 2 filters each. The Biosand filter uses the same amount of technology as a community treatment plant but it is smaller and easier to fit in a house or school and can last up to ten years. India's government has entitled the " Draft National Water Policy" that is leading toward wholesale privatization of water delivery and sanitation. As well as installing filters we will get volunteers to teach at four of the schools about sanitation.
Prezi by: Alexa, Gabi, Sarah and Sofia.
Each Biosand filter is $80. For 111 schools with 2 filters each, we need 222 filters total. That is $80 times 222 filters which is $17,760. We will also get 20 or 30 volunteers to teach so we will use $1,000 for t-shirts and name tags and other teaching supplies. We also will spend money to spread the word of our project with posters. That will cost an estimated $400. The total cost is $19,160. Our budget was $200,000.
We got all our information form:
Scientists say that because of the hot climate in Delhi we should use solar power to pump water out of the ground. We took that advice into consideration and researched the cost. It was to expensive to provide and maintain to everybody in Delhi. Instead we researched filters that could be maintained while provided to everyone in Delhi.
Only 38% of India's people wash their hands with soap before eating and only 30% of India's people wash their hands with soap before cooking.
In India people eat with their hands, but they only eat with one hand because the other hand is considered their wiping hand.
