“Access to safe water and sanitation is such a basic need, and if even one person doesn’t have it, that’s too many people. I believe that we can solve this issue in our lifetime, and that belief fuels my passion for what we do at Water.org. We know solving the water crisis is a daunting goal, but I believe that by partnering to bring bold action and solutions we, as a global community, can do it. As H.E. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said, ‘If your dreams do not scare you, they’re not big enough.’”
