- My Story
In 2019, I, together with a team of volunteers from Cisco, will volunteer in Caruaru, Brazil 2019 to build water tanks for families living in poverty with no access to clean water.
Families in this region live in extreme poverty. More than 5,5 millions of people lives without access to water, either for consumption or for basic daily activities such as cooking, or bathing. The lack of water access forces them to walk long distances, several times a week, to be able to supply their homes. As such, it is very common for children in the region to drop out of school due to their time being taken up with transporting water to their home. Women who dedicate part of their day to fetching water also cannot work in stable jobs resulting in a lack of income for the household.
Please support me and my colleagues to raise money to make this water tank construction a success in October 2019.
