“Having been to Burundi several times through our non-profit, SHAPE International, I have seen first hand the need for clean water, I was excited to see this book. What a great way to communicate to children the reality that there are many children in Africa that do not have clean water to drink. The 12:1 run has helped provide clean water to hundreds of children in Burundi.” – John M., Amazon.com
