THE PROJECT This year we are taking on a water crisis in Africa and headed to Rwanda. We are partnering with Life Outreach International and Living Water International and building three water wells that will supply clean water for over 2,500 for an entire life time. 663 million people in the world live without clean water. That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. Or, twice the population of the United States. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep kids out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick. But access to clean water means education, income and health - especially for women and kids.
