“Eleven years ago, when I came, I found students here would drink water directly from the tap. I took them through the process — I would boil it and put it in small cans for whoever wanted, and then they dropped the practice of drinking unboiled water. Students no longer go home to get treated for typhoid. Now, there is no reason to miss school, and this has improved the grades of the school.”
