Clean water, most of us take it for granted. But 2.5 billion people across the globe lack access to clean water. In places like Afghanistan, lack of access to water sanitation leads to a 1 in 5 child mortality rate. But a local Sacramento clean tech startup has taken on the mission of democratizing sustainable water and energy access.

I sat down with Arya Rashid, head of marketing and PR at Sacramento clean tech startup Tenkiv, to talk about their humanitarian mission to tackle things like the water crisis, energy shortage, and climate change. Check out the interview in either video or audio formats below and then check out their KickStarter campaign and help them reach their goal and solve the clean water crisis in developing countries.
