Around two billion people in the world have no electricity, and that’s one-third of the entire world’s population. What can be done to solve this problem? Well, one man has a solution. Manoj Bhargava made his billions as the founder of ‘5-Hour Energy’ drink, and he strongly believes that if you have wealth, then it’s your duty to help those who are less privileged.
Manoj Bhargava had a simple plan to help people and that was to invent stuff.
HansPowerPack – The PowerPack is a portable power device that allows people to easily generate and store electricity for basic uses, such as lights, fans and mobile devices. It includes a spotlight and room lighting, a USB port, and a 12-volt outlet for running small electronics.
RainMaker – The RainMaker for Brackish Water is a water filtration unit for use at the village level, which takes the salts and other minerals out of brackish water so it can be used for both drinking and agriculture. The device simply attaches to the water source and uses minimal electricity.
Shivansh Fertilizer – Shivansh Fertilizer is an easy and free method of making fertilizer using whatever is laying around the farm—dry plant materials, fresh grass, crop residues, animal manure. After 18 days and relatively little maintenance, the result is a nutrient-rich soil amendment.
