Our aim is to learn about how we can best understand the growing water crisis. By using Haiti as a use case, we can begin to understand the water crisis worldwide. Through service and product implementation we aim to work towards a world where water is readily available to all people.

Utilizing solar energy and sponge technology Tuju brings clean water to Haitian families. Tuju focuses on bringing clean water through solar distillation. Our design emphasizes accessibility, efficiency, and practicality.

Tuju is the first step in quenching the world's thirst.
