Water is Life: How one seven-year-old made a difference

What were you doing when you were seven years old? In 1999, seven-year-old Ryan Hreljac raised enough money to build a fresh water well in a Ugandan village. Now, at the age of 19, his foundation Ryan's Well, has completed 633 projects in 16 countries bringing access to clean water and sanitation to over 700,000 people.

Come and hear from Ryan himself how small steps can lead to big changes. See that it is never too early for us to start encouraging environmental stewardship and global activism in our children and youth
