are built, operated and maintained by WHI. The village councils provide access to land and raw water. Maintenance, clean water education, quality control and optional home delivery are all funded through the sale of the water. The UV Waterworks technology and WHI have provided safe drinking water to approximately five million people in Ghana, India, Liberia, Nigeria and the Philippines to date, among many other countries, with plans for expansion to Bangladesh.

Berkeley-Darfur Stove to Increase Fuel Efficiency

In 2005 Gadgil approached an entirely different threat to survival one in Darfur, a region of Western Sudan in a state of humanitarian emergency since 2003. The Berkeley-Darfur Stove, developed in partnership with nonprofit Potential Energy (formerly The Darfur Stoves Project) was born out of a request by the United States Agency for International Development's (USAID) Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance, to reduce the fuel demand of those in Darfur displacement camps. Eighty percent of these displaced individuals are female who often walk for up to seven hours, three to five times per week in search of firewood, making them vulnerable to assault each time they leave camp. Gadgil, his colleagues and students, and the women of Darfur designed the stove after several trips to the region.

First produced in partnership with CHF International and later Oxfam America, the Berkeley-Darfur Stove is assembled in North Darfur by trained benefactors. Women and girls - the primary beneficiaries - are invited to demonstrations by those currently using the stoves to learn how to use the device safely and efficiently. The stove sustainably increases the disposable income of the household by saving 55 percent of the fuel compared to traditional stoves, and saves more than three-hundred dollars per year. As of late 2011, more than 20,000 stoves have been disseminated, helping keep more than 125,000 women and their dependents safe. The sto
