AQUAFOR: A New Name in the Fight against the Global Water Crisis
SAN DIEGO, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — As global climates shift and wealth inequality increases, over 800 million people currently live in drought-stricken and unsanitary conditions around the world, struggling to meet their everyday needs. The greatest concern for the majority of these people is finding access to clean water. AQUAFOR, a company dedicated to uplifting the lives of millions in impoverished areas, aims to develop struggling economies by providing clean, sustainable water to communities in need.
Matt Talbert, CEO of AQUAFOR, founded the company in 2013 with the intent of aiding struggling communities in developing countries by utilizing his revolutionary product, the Borelite Drill. Designed to maximize portability and versatility, the Borelite Drill has altered the landscape of the clean water crisis by providing a more rugged, easy-to-use solution than its competitors. “The Borelite Drill is lighter and smaller than similarly capable drills,” says Talbert. “Not only is it easily transportable to the most remote regions of the world, but it’s also easy to use. A local man or woman can provide clean water to his or her community in less than 48 hours with minimal training.”
Soon after introducing the Borelite Drill, it was evident to Talbert that AQUAFOR should offer a full suite of water capabilities to complement its drilling solution. AQUAFOR is ready to provide end-to-end, turnkey water solutions, including training, education and sustainability. This “holistic” approach will help people in need by giving them the ability to provide their own water, instead of living off the kindness of strangers. AQUAFOR intends to make long-lasting partnerships with variety of organizations to provide economic relief, including humanitarian organizations, US and foreign government agencies, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) departments and non-government organizations (NGOs), as well as transnational corporations with industrial participation or offset obligations.
Looking forward, AQUAFOR plans to solidify its international partnerships with pilot projects to deploy the Borelite Drill and to identify technology partners to round out its full suite of capabilities.
