charity: water (@charitywater) — We believe in a future where everyone has clean and safe drinking water.
"We didn't think this day would ever come," Umu shared. "We used to spend all day getting water from the open well. Sometimes we didn't even get water. But now it's easy. We wake up early and do work quickly; we have time to do other jobs and earn money. It has changed our life." Photos: @jeremysnell
"Clean water is important for good health so we don't get sick." Berekech grew up with a goiter. She understands the importance of health and the role water plays in maintaining it.

Abrehet is amazing. She has 12 children. 12! And she’s constantly encouraging them to go to school and pursue a career. It used to be hard for her kids to stay healthy, but now, thanks to clean water, nothing is holding them back from getting an education and having the kind of life Abrehet wants for them.

Even though she loved school, Tahguas traded her education for the time-consuming task of collecting water for her parents. Now, thanks to clean water in her community, loyal daughters like Tahguas get to help their families most by going to school, not by staying home. Photo: @jeremysnell
