The newest initiative launched by Well Beyond is its diagnostic app. It was inspired by Evans’ work in the field in East Africa, where she visited a location that had an overflowing water tank.

I thought, ‘These communities need a diagnostic tool for such straightforward water-system issues that arise. This would save them so much time without water, and save them money in hiring technicians to drive to these remote locations to fix something that doesn’t really need high-level expertise.’”
