These students remind us that every person, no matter their means, their age, or their experience, can affect incredible impact. Last week, we visited St. Gabe's Catholic School and Grisham Middle School for our Classrooms to Clean Water Program to engage with the students about global water issues and empower them to make a difference. Many of these students will be fundraising during #ShowerStrike2019, and we are so inspired by their extreme passion to change the world at such a young age.

Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water - their households, schools, workplaces, farms, and factories are struggling to survive and thrive. Whoever you are, wherever you are, clean water is your human right. Help us reach Sustainable Development Goal 6 by joining our Village of monthly donors.

When we are in the field, we do more than drill. Listening is one of the most important things we do. We listen to what our partner communities actually need, not what we think they need. Without community empowerment and collaboration, sustainability is simply not feasible. Listening is the cornerstone of our beliefs and our model. 📷: John Langford
There are only a few times in each of our lives that we get to witness a truly historical global moment. Giving clean water to the entire planet will be one of those moments. We invite you to be a part of it: http://www.wellawareworld.org/get-involved 📷: Brett Buchanan

“Access to clean and affordable water and sanitation reinforces the dignity of girls.” -Amina J. Mohammed, UN Deputy General Secretary 📷: Greg Davis - National Geographic Image Collection Photographer
4 billion people lack access to basic sanitation facilities. Yet, sanitation is a necessity of a healthy society. Find out how this connects with our clean water work by reading our latest blog: http://bit.ly/sanitationblog 📷: Manny Pandya
WASH training time! This is an integral part of any water project. It empowers communities to lead their healthiest lives by providing best practices for sanitation and hygiene. Our community manager, Karen, leads this training at every new project site- and you can see the excitement as these kids prepare for their new future. 📷: Mary Hingst
It's the beginning of a new era in New Canaan, Kenya. With more than 6,000 people, the community has constantly struggled with access to clean water. 💧Most families can only afford to buy one jerrycan at a time to use for drinking water- which lasts one to two days. The rest of their water is collected from a dirty pond 4 kilometers away by the children after school. This will all change. On Thursday, we began drilling a sustainable water well in the community. Everyone is excited and hopeful. Most have left their homes to witness this project that will change their lives forever. 📷: Lindsey Reed | #CleanWaterForLife

We hope you have the most amazing year ahead.
