After our first water project in Malawi, we were fortunate to meet Theresa Sato who explained to us the improvements in the community since the installation of the Elephant pump in her village.

Education was such a major problem for the children in the village, as they would frequently contract diseases and be unable to attend school.Now things are different. Children are drinking and bathing in clean water, eradicating the risks of diseases that keep them away from school.

Theresa also told us about how the pressure on the health clinic had been significantly reduced as less people needed to visit for water-related reasons. Another awesome example of how dynamic the improvements to a community can be, simply through providing them with clean water.

They’re asking for more leadership roles in the workplace and compensation based on their skills, not their gender. Some women want to split household and child rearing obligations with their partners. And others want the freedom to behave as they wish without societal pressu

Founder's Thoughts: How I Keep Moving Forward During Times of Confusion

I am about to break-through!! As a CEO, founder, leader, etc., it’s often expected of you to know everything with absolute certainty all the time — or to at least give an air that you’ve got it all figured out.
