Wells built, lives changed

Statistics show that nearly three-fourths of rural African villagers tasked with fetching water
 are women and children. The lack of clean water too often poses grave health threats to families. The time spent 
traveling to and from a distant water source takes away from time that could go towards 
contributing to a family’s income or children’s education.

When a water project is completed in a village, it has an enormous positive impact. Meet some of the people whose lives have been changed 
by easy access to clean, safe water.
