'Water from air' quenches threatened girls' thirst in arid Kenya

14 Nov 2018, TRF

In northern Kenya, water can be hard to find, particularly in the dry season. A girls' centre has started using solar panels that condense water vapour in the air to supply their drinking water, relieving the girls from the inconvenience and possible danger of traveling to find water. The centre now creates about 400 litres of clean water each day.
