Explain your idea in details:
Faced with this great challenge of the unaccessibility of water in our community, our solution is to develop devices powered by solar energy, which can be placed anywhere and able to produce water by condensation even in desert conditions. These devices will consist in capturing the humidity that is in the air, by using some air aspirators to multiply the quantity of air received and after which will be condensed thanks to the condensers that will have our devices and lastly, to be able to produce water that will pass through filtration chambers in order to make it drinkable according to international standards. These filtration chambers will include several filtration methods such as SEDIMENT FILTER to eliminate rust, sand, dust, heavy metals, organic compounds, chlorine, odors, taste and impurities from 5 to 10 ㎛ . Second, a layer of PRE CARBON to remove chlorine, trihalomethane (THM), dust, color, heavy metals, organic compounds, odors and taste. The reverse osmosis part in the filtration chambers will eliminate bacteria, viruses, ionic substances, heavy metals and organic compounds. Finally, an Ultraviolet sterilizer to also destroy microorganisms in water.This device will have wheels that will facilitate mobility to be placed anywhere and even after a natural disaster to save lives and prevent waterborne diseases such as cholera. Full water will not only produce drinking water that will be sustainable but will also make a good management of water resources in the country thanks to a smart water management box that will have a solenoid valve that will allow to pass or stop water sent by the company, sensors that will allow the company to analyze the water it sends, a self-feeding system that will make this box autonomous thanks to the water received that will work as a mini hydro system and an antenna that will
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
FULL WATER will allow the increase of the water production units in a big way to reduce the annual mortality rate caused by a lack of drinking water, Better management and a better control of the water allow a better use of the water resource service, avoiding scarcity and abuse, ensuring transparency and efficiency of public service. This project will facilitate the development of agriculture in our community through the mobility of our production facilities that can be placed in any place and will restart the economy of our country. By using renewable energies, full water will have no harmful impact on the environment and will reforest our mountains of plants. Nowadays, with this problem of global warming of the planet, many rivers begin to dry up and our solution is the best to ensure a better future for future generations because water is life. The atmosphere contains the widest source of water available for humanity, so much so that it can be used to help large communities.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
FULL WATER will be managed by an experienced board of directors in the field of finance and sustainable development. The demand for drinking water by individuals and family members continues to grow in Haiti. According to data from the Ministry of Environment, Haiti needs 230 million m3 of water, including 68 million for the capital, Port au Prince. (The Nouvellist). The walking size is about 640 million USD. FULL WATER had a market share of 35 percent in five years. On the local market, there are not really companies that offer similar devices. On the other hand, in this market, they are diversified, some market water production machines, and others supply and distribute water. We will develop mini-appliances to allow individuals to own one at home and also develop others with a large capacity of water production for communities of people. We already have players in the financial sector such as the BRH (Bank of the Republic of Haiti) who promises to be a potential investor in the framework of this project, we have discussions with members of the Government of Haiti to finance this project because it could not only save lives but also facilitate the development of agriculture.

This solution was also selected to participate in the second forum of the social and solidarity economy in Montreal in 2016. I also developed the first mobile browser from Haiti (Navigap), Cithadd Messenger which is an internal communication application for In September 2017, I represented Haiti and the entire Caribbean as a finalist in a technology competition in England with my Startup for our innovative solution. I have also been named a young leader and actor of change by ASIA YOUTH INTERNATIONAL MODEL UNITED NATIONS. I was a finalist of the contest HAITI CREATIVE with our tourist application Haiti Splendide, realized by the Inter-American Development Bank.
