Meet Deepika Kurup, winner of 2015’s National Geographic Explorer Award.
After learning that one ninth of the world doesn’t have access to clean water, Deepika was inspired to develop a sustainable technique for water purification. She wanted to use inexpensive materials, such as cement, and created a filter that uses sunlight to remove contaminants in water. The filter can be used in water tanks or point of use water purification systems to bring clean water to the people who need it most.
