The main causes of the water and sanitation crisis are the depletion and poor quality of Gaza’s single coastal aquifer, which is the source of most of the water in Gaza. Today 97 per cent of this water is unfit for human consumption based on World Health Organization (WHO) standards. To that end, we are powering water treatment and desalination plants across Gaza to provide people with drinkable water.
This plant serves a unique purpose. Located near the eastern borders of Khanyounis, more than ten farms depend on our system for irrigation.
This desalination plant is located inside one of the main schools in Khanyounis, where almost 2000 children get their elementary education. The people of this area have no clean water to drink, and if it exists, it is very expensive for them.
This centre is located in a very poor village Shujaaya. In 2014, this village was destroyed and thousands of families have lost their houses.

Yousef had to go to the hospital everyday. Thus, he had no time to see his friends and family. SunBox provided him a solar system that provides him 24/7 electricity. Now he can run his machine home, and play with the kids.
What makes Sekka street links two large neighborhoods with 4 mosques, 2 clinics, 3 pharmacies, and 5 supermarkets. We worked with local community engineers to design a system to make it safe for the 4000+ residents to drive at night, especially in the rainy days, when the streets become muddy and full of puddles.
Jablia is home to 350+ families who struggled during the war. The residents of this village try to stay indoors during the hot days they live near the beach and only 14 m above sea level. So during the night, when its cooler out, our solar powered street lights allow for the community to socialize.
Yes, we also consider facilitating community spaces as impact. A salon is not just a place where a girl gets her hair done; its a safe space for her to vent about any emotional or domestic abuse she is undergoing; and a networking opportunity for some.
