The pure water straw is the solution to providing people with the freedom to live their lives without the worry of having access to clean, safe water. Providing the pure water straw and clean water has an impact on every facet of life. Instead of spending hours each day in the grueling task of hauling safe water from distant wells, children can now spend their time helping their families or going to school. Women can now economically contribute to families. More crops can be tended to, roads improved, and lives changed. With such a basic human need met, people can begin to build their lives and their communities for a better tomorrow.
