After seeing his students take jobs supporting companies he didn't agree Dr. Omar Clay took the chance to pivot. Dr. Clay lives in Baja Mexico and is the founder of Science for the People. An organization that aims to help teach people without potable water sources how to set up, maintain and use simple water purification techniques.
