This exhibit highlights the importance of water as a precious source of life and its impact on the lives of women and girls around the world.
Here are some interesting facts about water collection according to water.org: http://water.org/water-crisis/women-children-facts/
Women and children spend 125 million hours each day collecting water.
Women and girls often spend up to 6 hours each day collecting water.
Women and girls living without a toilet spend 266 million hours each day finding a place to go.
Women and children bear the primary responsibility for water collection.
In Africa and Asia, women and children walk an average of 3.7 miles a day just to collect water.
My piece “Mommy and Me” arrived safely in Taiwan. It will be a part of the exhibit “Protect the Earth’s Environment” held at the National Tainan Living Art Center, Tainan City, Taiwan, from April 30 – May 29, 2016. I will post photos from the exhibit after the opening.
