W.A.T.E.R.: West African Technology, Eduacation, and Reciprosity
"In the age when man has forgotten his origins and is blind to even his most essential needs for survival, water along with other resources has become the victim of his indifference." - Rachel Carson The water crisis in sub-Saharan Africa is critical.

Addressing the shortage of clean water in developing nations will take investments of money, time, and resources. Seventeen students traveled to Benin in West Africa.
