Problem: What problem is this initiative trying to address?

Le problème qu'on essaie de résoudre est le non accès à l'eau potable au milieu rural . On a choisit ce probleme vu l'importance de l'eau qui est une matière vitale et qui diminue de plus en plus . Ainsi le taux elevé de personnes n'ayant pas accès à l'eau potable de 663 millions au monde

Solution Summary: What is the proposed solution? What do you see as its most promising aspects for creating shared value?

AquaClean est un projet, faisant partie de l’entreprise B-ARG, qui consiste en la fabrication et la commercialisation de filtres bio-sable pour le traitement des eaux insalubres afin de les rendre potables et/ou les utiliser dans l’irrigation.
Ce filtre est destiné principalement aux personnes qui n’ont pas accès à l’eau potable surtout dans le monde rural. Ainsi que les habitants des villes qui ont une mauvaise qualité d’eau du robinet.

Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.

Je me rappelle en étant petite, je passais mes vacances à la compagne, et d’ailleurs beaucoup d’entre nous l’ont fait, aux environs de Marrakech. J’étais témoin de la souffrance des habitants de cette région à cette époque cela se manifeste à travers le nombre de kilomètres parcourus quotidiennement afin d’obtenir quelques litres d’eau et revenir heureux et joyeux sans se soucier si vraiment cette eau est potable. Des enfants qui quittaient leurs écoles pour aider leurs parents à ramener de l’eau. Des familles qui ne trouvent pas quoi manger parce que leurs fils sont atteints de maladies de cause hydrique . j'en etais temoin !!

Bonne initiative ! Cependant, il faudrait expliquer plus en détails l'impact social et environnemental du projet (sur la santé, la vie des habitants...), et aussi montrer comment le projet peut devenir économiquement viable.
