World Water Day

In honor of World Water Day...

Uganda * May 2012
On my trip to Uganda last spring, I learned one of the greatest obstacles for a girl to get an education in Africa is lack of clean, drinking water.  The task of procuring water is typically assigned to the girls.  If the nearest well is far away, they spend a good portion of their days making the round trip.  The time it takes to retrieve clean drinking water for their families can prevent girls from having the time to go to school. 

More wells in the world means more girls get to go to school.  To get involved in digging a well, check out THIS website: Charity: Water
