Unfortunately, this luxury of not worrying, this mentality that our water is clean, is not a reality for many in the world today.

When we started in October 2009 we had a vision of being a grassroots movement of people, stories, and actions to alleviate extreme global poverty. Our conviction is that we don't have to be celebrities, rock stars, or millionaires but rather, everyone can help change the world.
