Water is something that a lot of us take for granted. Having clean, drinking water is akin to the sun rising every morning. We assume both will just happen.
As it turns out, one out of every nine people in the world do not have access to clean water. The impact from the global water crisis is 3.4 million people dying each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes. Often times, the burden of water collection from remote wells falls upon women and children in developing countries.
