Global Connection Of Water

March 30, 2012
By Deb Naybor - conservationist , Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy

From my window, I see rolling green hills, patches of trees and scattered houses. The scene is not of beautiful Chautauqua County but a snapshot of Kyotera, Uganda, in central Africa. About 50 miles south of the equator, it is a small town which acts as my base during research and work in nearby villages. I've been volunteering in Africa since 2000, and many of my projects center around the importance of water and the environment. To truly appreciate the importance of water, you need only to meet those who live without access to clean, safe water, like the women I met yesterday who spend two hours each day collecting and treating water for their families.
