The problem we chose to tackle was the lack of clean drinking water in places like rural Africa. After we visited our local Wastewater Treatment Plant and Waterworks it made us appreciate how lucky we are to have safe and clean drinking water.We wanted to help kids in other places get easier access to safe and clean drinking water too.
We visited a non-profit organization called The Water Project. They raise money to bring clean water to people in Kenya, Sierra Leone, and Uganda. We learned that finding water is a daily challenge for kids and women in these areas. They spend so much time looking for water that they don’t have time to go to school or play.
