When water comes instantly from the turn of a tap -- hot or cold -- little attention is given to the 1 billion+ people who are not so well served.  We've all seen photos of women half way around the world carrying 40-pound buckets of water on their heads. We likely dismiss our discomfort over their discomfort with thoughts and comments such as, "It's part of their culture and a woman's traditional role." As if they had a choice!
A woman's journey into this 'traditional role' begins with young girls who dream of a more empowering future. Here's a story.  
Now, for the first time ever, a 9-nine-year-old girl is telling her story as she sees another pathway in this flip book.
Author Iris Canham, and illustrator Anurag Singh, have created a masterful piece of artwork with a transformative message!
This book is an extension of the highly successful Hippo Rollers program supported by many Rotary clubs and other organizations, led by Rotary Club of Gibsons.
