Digging wells, providing people with water filters, and installing pumps mark the success of any water project. But that's actually where success begins. Water quality has to be maintained. Pumps require maintenance. People need to learn to use the pump correctly, without modifying the way it works. (Photo is of Ahmadiyaa School Girls, Sierra Leone.

The Peer Water Exchange (PMX) need volunteers to visit projects to see whether the project is still effective. PMX needs to know whether water systems are still operating and that the local community is using it. Find out how you can visit a project and report back. They need volunteers who are willing to talk with locals in the community and take photos or video. By volunteering, you'll be part of the solution for the global water crisis.
