A Jerry can full of water weighs 40 lbs. People all over Africa collect water in them and haul it long distances back to their homes. Women and children usually bear the burden of water collection, walking miles to the nearest source, which is likely to make them sick.
Water transforms lifestyles, communities and the potential for future generations. Where projects are built, disease rates reduce, women and children have time for work and school, families have a better chance for economic freedom and sanitary living becomes a possibility.
