Did you know that there’s six times more water in the atmosphere than there’s in all rivers around the world?
In her research in order to democratize the access to water Beth Koigi has been looking at the largest ressource of fresh water and that is air.

Beth Koigi is a young kenyan entrepreneur who founded Majik Water, an innovative project which transforms air humidity into safe water thanks to solar energy, with a vision to increase access to clean drinking water in water-stressed regions. Coming from a farm family, her experience on the campus of Chuka University, where water was unsafe, gives her the idea to create her own water filter. Aqua Clean Initiative was created in order to provide affordable filters to underserved communities. After being accepted to the Global solutions program in the Silicon Valley, she founded Majik Water which is now an award winning company, including the Tech Entrepreneur of the Africa Women Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF), EDF Pulse, Oxford Innovation Fair and MIT Water Innovation.
