Learn about the DO Culture to see how we DO things. We call this “The DO Way of Innovation”. We think it is radically different than any other organization you’ll encounter.
We are addressing the most pressing, overlooked, and under-addressed needs for people in developing countries.
LifePump™, DO’s flagship innovation, is a reliable, deep-reaching, and long-lasting hand pump that addresses one of the world’s most pressing needs— consistent, reliable access to safe water.
LifePumpLink™ is a satellite-based remote monitor that provides real-time information on a pump’s performance, indicates changes in usage, and sends alerts.
LifeTap™ is a reliable self-closing valve that is robust enough to handle the wear and tear of a community tap stand while preventing water loss.
Technologies in Development
autoLifePump™ is a solar-powered electric motor that can be added to a LifePump™ to increase the flow rate for growing communities and higher demands for water.
LifeLatrine™ is addressing the need for sustainable, affordable latrines as a vital step in alleviating poverty.
Medical - DO is addressing the needs of healthcare in developing countries and is in the early stages of creating an innovative solution to wound care.
