Audience: Who have you identified as your customer/recipient groups and do these groups value your solution for different reasons? How do you engage different customer/recipient groups to deliver your solution?
Our target audiences were poor farmers in rural villages who suffered from polluted canals which led to production of diseased crops and huge economic losses to them. We effectively engaged them by organizing awareness campaign and seminars that convinced them to force governorate authorities to solve the problem and enable us to use another more effective process for treating sewage water by ozone generators.
Scaling the solution: How would the prize money and publicity help you to achieve your objectives over the next two years?
Winning the award and the prize money will help us to provide the needed budget for participating with farmers in their company to help them and the needed budget for implementation of second phase of the project in 10 plants to spread the impact. And publicity will give us strength to convince the holding company for water and waste water to implement the second phase.
