Imagine a place where there is no running water, no sewer system, and no plan to bring clean water to your community. Envision yourself waking up, groggy eyed and the first step out of bed takes you to the 20-liter jerry can sitting by the front door. Wearily you begin the daunting 3-mile walk to the local watering hole. Upon arrival you notice the water is exceptionally dirty today. You daydream of being able to one day take a gulp from a glass filled with clean, sparkling fresh water. After snapping back to reality you fill the 20-liter jerry can to the top. Satisfied, you embark on your journey home. Over ninety, painstaking minutes later you arrive home. One grueling task done for the day now on to another.
