Project Stage: Select the description below that best applies to your approach.

  • Growth (have moved past the very first activities; working towards the next level of expansion)

1. Personal Journey: What’s the story behind why you decided to start this project? NOTE: All applications must include a 1 minute video that answers: “I am stepping up to make change because..."

In 2016 there was cholera in Sudan and there was a lot of casualties, It was like a flow of deaths and
pain that you had no control over it. its our duty as youth to be creative , savvy and indomitable will to propel the innovation that our society needs to tackle its toughest problems

2. The Problem: What problem are you helping to solve?

Water Contamination is one of the world toughest problem , but in poor countries like ours there is not even monitoring Systems for water contamination so diseases that could be prevented by early detection wouldn't be a problem . And because of Nile river contamination spreads fast and most states depend one river for daily use f water .

3. Your Solution: How are you planning to solve this problem? Share your specific approach.

By using Wireless sensors for monitoring and recording the physical conditions of the environment . The sensors use to measure dozens of the most relevant water quality parameters and Wi-Fi to connect to the Cloud for real-time water control. The Second approach is GIS [Geographical information systems] Framework for gathering, managing & analysing data. With this unique capability, GIS reveals deeper insights into data, such as patterns, relationships, and situations helping users make smarter decisions . That help to locate every sensor in the maps which will be more easier to monitor and to determine contaminated areas, inform the authorities to quarantine the contamination in a specific area and handle it. After collecting all this amount of data and store the data in servers here come the role of the leading field of the future (DATA MINING) The process of discovering patterns in large data sets involving methods at the intersection of machine learning, statistics, and database systems . which helps in finding a logical connection between data.To more understanding of the contamination in that area .We can also connect the type of contamination with specific area through GIS.

4. Example: Please walk us through a specific example of what happens when a person or group gets involved with your project.

There is a case study in Sudan , there is a sugar industry "Kenana" and the waste from the industry mixed with the water which absorb Oxygen from water and lead to death of fish and immigration , and the fish was the major food source in that area . We go to Kenana industry and offer our project to monitor there water source and make sure to obtain the problem before its happened , by using DO (dissolve Oxygen ) sensor . Detecting changes in the water and stop contamination from happening .

5. The X Factor: What is different about your project compared to other programs or solutions already out there?

I read once that social changes frequently begins with a single entrepreneur " one obsessive individual who see a problem and envision a new solution ,who take the initiative to act on that vision" ,and by attaching to the goal rather than particular approach .
In addition the project is collaboration work between different s fields of study which allow anticipated obstacles , monitoring result and planning a head .more concerned with quality and efficiency and valued long-term consideration over short-term gains

6. Impact: How has your project made a difference so far?

The Project is a combination between hardware and several software s , Unfortunately Water Sensors aren't available in Sudan but we straggle to afford one sensor from Amazon for prototype which is pH (potential Hydrogen ) Sensor. we fished our prototype and we need the fund to start the first network monitoring .

7. What’s Next: What are your ideas for taking your project to the next level?

The Project is a combination between hardware and several software s , Unfortunately Water Sensors aren't available in Sudan but we straggle to afford one sensor from Amazon for prototype which is pH (potential Hydrogen ) Sensor. we fished our prototype and we need the fund to start the first network monitoring .

8. Future Support: What are the resources needed to make your vision a reality?

As we information Technology Student we cover the part of technology but we need a team " water quality specialist , engineers , laboratories , health" .
Space to start the business .
Partners .

9. Finances: If applicable, have you mobilized any of the following resources so far?

  • Friend support

10. Ripple Effect: Please share some ideas of how you could partner with other changemakers or involve other young people as leaders in making a difference.

I think that every idea is a peace of puzzle for big picture

How did you hear about this challenge?

Referral: If you discovered the Challenge thanks to an organization or person other than Ashoka or T-Mobile, who was it?

Hey Ethar,

A client of mine is in this space and is always looking for new partners. I would love to make the introduction and see we can collaborate in any capacity.
