Can one undergraduate student, returning from a mission trip, really make a significant difference? Brandon's development of a solar-powered water purification system that is inexpensive and deployable will do just that. And, along the way, a few lessons were learned.

He graduated from college in May 2016 and plans to pursue an MBA degree leading to a career in international aid and relief. A mission trip to Haiti inspired him to become a rising entrepreneur who has recently launched, "Water the World: Live Locally. Give Globally." His organization will provide mobile, solar-powered water pumps for agriculture irrigation and clean drinking water in villages in developing nations.
