FIRST Millenium Development Goal MET!

So, this is a liiittle late...but better late than never! The very first Millenium Development Goal was officially met last week-exactly one week ago, in fact.

So, what did it have to do with? SAFE WATER. The proportion of people in the world who did not have access to safe drinking water was halved...and well before the deadline of 2015.

Between 1990 and 2010, 2 billion people were provided access to good drinking water sources...how incredible!

While there is certainly more to be done, this a HUGE step. For more information, click here for the WHO news release.

Here's a short video as well:

That's all for now, folks! Enjoy your evening.
