15-year-old President Leads Water Committee in Mozambique Village

For every project charity: water completes, they require the village to elect a water committee. Each committee consists of five to eight men and women who are responsible for the project's long-term sustainability. This team maintains the pump, makes business plans for any future repairs and teaches community members about health, sanitation and hygiene. In her village in Mozambique, 15-year-old student Natalia serves as president of her community's water committee. "I was chosen because I know how to read and write," she explains. "But also because I can maintain progress."
