World Water Day: Behind-the-scenes look at our work in Rwanda

One of my favorite things about the 10 Days is getting the opportunity to interact with incredibly talented individuals who are passionate about what they do.

Welcome to The Well (A manifesto, of sorts.)

In 2007, three friends went to a Derek Webb concert and learned that people around the world die every day because they don’t have access to clean drinking water—a privilege Americans often take for granted.
