The Most Important Modern Convenience

| 3 Comments

This is an amazing story highlighting the role of women in a particular society, their commitment to efforts that improves communal life, and the many benefits that derive from that most basic of modern conveniences: safe drinking water delivered by pump and generator to people's homes.

That reminds me of my favorite charity, the girl effect. It's at www.thegirleffect.org, and you can watch a video about it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIvmE4_KMNw

They work off the data that girls will work harder to better their own communities - which betters the region, which betters the country, which betters the world - whereas boys tend to leave their communities.

Yes, the girl effect is awesome. It's one of those things that makes you wonder, "Why didn't I think of that?" and also makes you glad that someone finally did.

Hey! Happy Holidays and all that stuff. :-)
