Waterborne diseases are the third most significant infectious disease in the world taking over 5 million lives a year. These diseases arise when water is being contaminated, when the source of water is being left open to microbes and bacteria. Yaku, is a water vessel for people in communities depending on an external source of water for their use; they have to take water from a community supply and then take it back home to use it. Yaku conserves water safely, by having closures in its caps not letting bacteria in. It holds 3 gallons of water, and its body and handles makes it easy to take from one place to the other, no matter the terrain.
