Recently I invited Nick Jordan, Founder of Wells of Life, to chat with me on my podcast, The Next Chapter with Charlie. A plethora of information is easy to find regarding the use of unclean water in the world, resulting in death or serious disease. For instance, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports that by 2025 one-half the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas.
“Charlie, did you know the average woman in Uganda walks six hours every day to bring jugs of dirty water back home to her village?” Nick advised us. “In addition the girls are forced to tag along to gather firewood. That means no women to take care of the villages (as if the men would do that) and only boys are in school.”
