Global Interconnectedness..Here AND There

This presentation will explore global interconnectedness. What is the relationship between what is going on in your life and what is going on in someone else's life half way across the world? This presentation will introduce the operations of Water for Sudan, Inc, an organization that helps provide clean safe drinking water to thousands in Southern Sudan. Many die because they lack clean water, a simple necessity which we, who can read this abstract, do not need to think about. Water for Sudan, Inc's mission is to drill fresh water wells for the people in southern areas of Sudan, providing the foundation for stable, healthy communities. When fresh, clean water is available, lives are transformed. But why should we care? Let's start here and now to understand the concept of global interconnectedness and why we should be involved.
