I wanted to find more out about how this works and more of the background story so I interviewed the founder and CEO Andrea Demichelis who is part of our “Save the World” group on Whatsapp.

Andrea is a remarkable young man, 25 years old – an Italian living in Paris, trying to MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

First, who are you and what do you do… 

My name is Andrea Demichelis and I’m a 25-year-old Italian man working to leave a positive impact in the world. After my business studies in Paris, I understood that I was not supposed to follow the conventional Wall Street path, but rather creating something of my own. Soon enough, this “something of my own” became “something that could really impact the world” and I ended up founding Elliot For Water. Elliot For Water is just like Google, the difference is, it creates water every time you use it.


How did you come up with the idea for Elliot for water

The idea came out of nowhere, I was not really looking for it, to be honest. The moment I decided that I wanted to do something more than just making money a documentary about water was passing on tv.  I remembered all my studies about the topic, and how 60% of the deaths in developing countries are directly linked to water. I ended up asking myself: why not creating a Google for water? It could help millions of people without asking for one single penny of donation. It made a lot of sense in my head, and I went all in with this idea.

Who works with you on Elliot for water 

Because of funding, an aspect that all startups face, I’ve been working alone until now, with temporary collaborators from now and then. The good news is, I’m in the process on assembling my own team of Avengers right now. If all go well, by February we’ll be able to start working altogether.

Kids, in developing countries, have to walk up to 6 hours a day to collect water for their families.

How do people get water from people using a search engine 

The principle is very simple and it works just like any other search engine: you go on Elliot For Water and make your search, for example, hotel in Paris. The search engine will then give you all the results, which for us are coming directly from Bing, and, among these results, you will find some sponsored links, advertising.
Every time one of these links is clicked, Elliot For Water automatically raise money. 60% of the profit, then, goes to financing clean water projects. In this way, you end up donating 1 liter of safe drinking water every time you make a search.

Who gets the water, there are many people in need.

Our mission is to give water to 1 million people by 2025 so, hopefully, a lot of people will be helped. To begin, we are working in Guinea-Bissau, thanks to a collaboration with our charity partner WellFound.

Why did you choose Guinea-Bissau to help first and how do you prioritize. 

We chose Guinea-Bissau, as our first country to work with, because of the trust that I have in WellFound. This charity from London has been working on the ground, and with the poorest villages of the country, for more than 10 years now, terrifically helping the local communities.
As far as the prioritizing is concerned, I feel that the best thing I could do, especially now that we are at the very beginning of our path, is to put my trust in expert hands in the field, who can advise me on how to move in a very critical and difficult field.

What do you need help with?

I would say in getting the search engine out in the world and, probably even more important, improve it. All feedbacks, at this stage of the project, are more than welcome. In the end, I want to build a search engine based on the people who use it.

How can we help you?

The best thing you can do is setting Elliot for Water as your default search engine, and share it with your friends on all your social media channels.

What’s next? 

The next two things will be the realization of our first clean water project in Guinea-Bissau and the creation of the team of superheroes who will bring water to 1 million people in a matter of few years.

Thank you, Andrea, this is such a great project, and I wish you all the best, I’m sure we all do.
