Water in West Africa

Hosted by


Most villages in West Africa do not have access to clean water. The effects of this are huge and can determine whether young girls ever get a chance to go to school. Former LA District Attorney and now noted photographer Gil Garcetti talks about women, water and wells. His book, Water Is Key, shows the problems facing Africans who lack access to safe water and sanitation. Garcetti's photo exhibit, Women, Water and Wells, at UCLA's Fowler Museum runs through November 25, 2007.
