Water gives Sumy joy.

Sumy's favorite photograph hangs, framed, on a wall in her Indonesian home. It's her favorite photograph, because it's a picture of her five-year-old daughter Fitri smiling, all dressed up for her first day of school.

"I am so happy to have water at home for Fitri. She won't have to walk to gather water like I did as a little girl. Instead, she's in Kindergarten, and she is learning so much. I did not attend school at her age. I want her to go to college, maybe become a doctor. I am so happy we can help her do this."

Just looking at the photo of Fitri makes Sumy smile. So, too, does looking at her kitchen tap.
