A crash course in changing the world.
I choose the international, non-profit, volunteer-based, humanitarian organization "Global Water", because I like the idea they pursue:
"Nothing changes a community like providing a source of clean water for the first time"
Global Water believes
that the lack of access to safe drinking water is the primary cause of hunger, disease and poverty throughout the developing world.
Crops and livestock wither and die without the water, so people go hungry and become weak.They are more prone than others to certain diseases, that lead in extreme cases to death.
Furthermore water is the lifeblood of a communiy. If people are weak and in bad health, they don't have the energy to work, to go to school and learn.
Global Water help save the lives of people in developing countries that are lost due to unclean water. They work with small non-profit organizations in the developing countries, themselves (referred to as non-governmental organizations or NGOs) and support many projects.
"These projects include: surface water supply and distribution systems, rain harvesting supply systems, water-well drilling activities, hand pump installations and repair, water treatment equipment, latrines, school hand-washing stations, community laundry-washing and bathing facilities, watershed reforestation, and health & hygiene education."
