“I believe that we can solve the water and sanitation crisis 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.’”
