I want every child to have access to clean water by the year 2020. Kenya is slightly smaller than the state of Texas and yet it is brimming with 44 million people with no consistent access to clean, safe water. Common water sources are local watering holes for animals and people alike, runoff from Mt. Kilimanjaro, a small stream, or Lake Victoria, filled with raw sewage, industrial waste, parasites, bacteria, and disease. It has been reported that 10% of the global disease burden could be prevented by improving water supply, hygiene, and sanitation, and through proper water management. In Kenya, due to lack of access to water and sanitation, diarrhea is second to pneumonia in deaths in children under five years of age. Access to clean, safe water is a catalyst for change and the first step to elevating communities from a cycle of sickness and poverty to one of health and hope.
