FILM DESCRIPTION: The award-winning short film by Evan Abramson & Carmen Elsa Lopez brings to life the daily struggles experienced by millions of residents living in western Kenya without easy access to safe drinking water. But the film is also about hope. It showcases a unique new public health program providing the region with sustainable access to clean water. The film chronicles the program start-up, when nearly 880,000 water filters were distributed for free to almost all homes in the region. It shows how this program’s unique carbon financing model ensures sustainability at no cost to residents, governmental agencies or donor groups.
