For the past few months I have been preoccupied with the bothersome knowledge that everyday billions of people are without clean water. I feel a wave of guilt every time I wash the dishes or take a shower. So, I decided to do a little research about the conditions and the solutions. Honestly, this seems like a solvable problem; digging wells can’t be all that difficult. (Obviously I’m sure there are external hurdles…) After all, we can dig for fossil fuels miles beneath the sea, surely we can dig a bunch of wells to quench the thirst of our fellow man.
I made a presentation about my research. I think one of the photos got a little wonky, because I have been back and forth between computers. Check out the sites at the end; there are some great organizations doing good things for those in need!
