Created in 2018

Throughout the developing world, collecting potable water is a chore often taken on by women. It's time consuming, can be dangerous, and it can keep girls from focusing on school, studying and enjoying childhood.

Today, women around the world will spend a collective 200 million hours collecting water (water.org). The burden of finding a safe water resource for their families for drinking, cooking, sanitation and hygiene is keeping women from pursuing other economic opportunities, girls from going to school, and an entire gender from enjoying their childhood. 

I'm sharing photographs of some of the women I've spent time with as they collect water, in order to encourage more people around the world to help work towards more solutions. water.org is one particular organization doing great work to empower more people to have access to safe water across the world.
