A crash course in changing the world.

LEARN3: Who else is inventing creative, sustainable ways to power our everyday lives?

This blog is going to talk about the invention 'Life Straw'. Estimated 884 million people in the world, 37% of whom live in Sub-Saharan Africa, still use unimproved sources of drinking water. Lack of access to safe water is really a serious problem in developing country. Because from unsafe water, especially young's are affected from it, they are easily to be exposure from diarrhoeal diseases. Nearly one in five child deaths – about 1.5 million each year – is due to diarrhoeal. Diarrhoea kills more young children than AIDS, malaria and measles combined. To reduce diarrhoeal diseases new method of drinking water was invented, it was drinking by life straw. Life straw has several filters so that it is more safer and cost less than the water purifier. From the invention of life straw, people in developing country doesn't need to go to market and buy really clean water. They can just go to the well or decent condition of water and drink it straight away instead of buying in the market. The benefit from it is that sipping through the LifeStraw filters surface water on-site, reducing the transmission of bacteria and viruses. Each filters about 160 gallons (around 600 litres). When you have one life straw, it lasts long and because it replaces water purifier. It safes the energy and resources.

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
