Around the world, 1 billion people lack access to clean water. Because of this, a child dies every 15 seconds. We can build a sustainable water well in Africa that will provide 500 people with clean water for the rest of their lives. With clean water, women and children no longer have to spend hours a day hauling water over miles of land. Children can go to school and be educated. Less people will be affected from diseases found in polluted water.
