“Water is Life” Quilt Exhibit

My piece “Our Journey” made it’s debut at the U.N. Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland on March 22, 2016.

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.
