When you turn on your kitchen sink what comes out? Clean and clear water? What if it came out dirty and brown? What if you had to walk 6 miles a day to find a tap? And what if that tap was a watering hole where the cows and other animals also drank, bathed and – well, you get the picture.

The Human Toll More people lack access to clean water than people who live in the USA. And a large majority of those affected are kids.

But it's just a water problem, right? The water crisis doesn't just affect thirst though, it impacts issues such as health, economics, productivity, education and beyond.
