Pres & CEO
Moses West Foundation

Moses West is a former U.S. Army Ranger, inventor, and philanthropist who has dedicated his life to addressing the global water crisis. He has been leading the development of atmospheric water generation technology for over a decade, which provides access to clean and safe water in areas where traditional water sources are scarce or contaminated. Under his leadership, the Moses West Foundation has been able to provide sustainable water sources to areas in need across the globe, including Flint, Michigan, Jackson, Mississippi, Vieques, Puerto Rico, and Sandbranch, Texas.

The Foundation's mission is to provide sustainable solutions to address the global water crisis. It aims to make clean water accessible to all and to help alleviate food deserts in underserved communities. The Foundation's focus is on providing access to sustainable water sources, reducing water usage in vertically grown food projects, promoting education and sustainable practices, and developing partnerships with local universities and STEM programs. The Foundation is also working towards developing sustainable irrigation systems to reduce the impact of farming on the environment.

The Foundation has been successful in its efforts to address food deserts in underserved communities in America. It has been developing sustainable urban agricultural zones in places like Chicago, Illinois, which promote the growth of crops locally and eliminate the need for long-distance transportation of food. The Foundation's efforts have been making a significant impact in these communities, providing access to fresh and healthy food to those who need it most.

The Foundation's designation as UN SDG Action 49191 has allowed it to bring its initiatives to a global stage and work towards making clean water accessible to all. The Foundation is working with other organizations on a global scale to address the issue of water scarcity.
