Feeding 9 Million by 2050, When 1 in 9 Don't Have Access to Clean Water

Childhood obesity is a problem that is currently surfacing around the Unites States, however, millions around the world still go to bed malnourished and hungry. Simultaneously, 1 in 9 people globally still lack access to clean water- a right that many of us take for granted.
So many strive for solutions, but they turn their focus to complicated, technological solutions- referenced in another blog post- when the people they aim to help have only the most fundamental of educations. As a result, these solutions end up creating a dependency on outward sources, also known as the "white savior" dilemma. When these solutions, ultimately unsustainable- fail, these communities emerged even more damaged than previously.
For this challenge, our team wanted to address not just the end goal, but the root problem at hand. We aimed for a solution that could address all of these issues in a sustainable way, that would in fact, promote community growth in the process. In order to do this, we looked to the most basic (or shall I say "neutral") of solutions.
We hope you are as excited to hear our solution, as we are to present it, and look forward to more details in the coming days!

Our Mission

We're a team of students from Cal Poly SLO, and we want to change the world. Our team believes that our generation, more than previous ones, has the means and resources to make change, and that it is our time to take full advantage. We're a team of dreamers, of thinkers, of believers, and we are not content to simply stand by and watch life happen. We want to use our time to make an impact where we can, and we intend to make sure that we leave our legacy.

Our Background

As our generation ages from teenagers to young adults, it becomes our responsibility to face the world's problems. There is so much inequality in our world, and it is something that needs to be addressed and fixed. Our generation- so much more than ones in the past- has the means and the resources to bring about great change. We've seen the world be revolutionized by technology in the past few years, and it is now time for that technology to be used to revolutionize how we address world issues. We want to bring about that revolution.
