One of our newest and most exciting initiatives is “Barefoot Basketball”, in which we’ve been setting up basketball half courts in rural villages of Pakistan.

The impoverished villagers had no nearby access to water, so they’d send women and children to fetch it. They would have to travel for hours and hours on foot in the heat, carrying heavy water pots to the nearest running river water and all the way back to their village with now filled, heavier pots. Because the water is unsanitary, the villagers would only be able to use that water to wash and shower, not drink or cook with. Also, the supply would be limited, so the villagers would have to use the water conservatively to ration it.Read More
