from the field: reunited.

Blog Home | | from the field

The last few days have been a blur of visits to water projects outside of Kigali, Rwanda. We toured rainwater catchments and eco-friendly latrines at schools with Water for People (currently our partners in Malawi). We caught up with the Access Project to see government-run health clinics in the Bugesera district that need clean water. Today, we checked up on charity: water wells drilled two years ago in Murinja.

It’s here we ran into Jean Bosco, a young boy Esther photographed two years ago. Do you remember him? We shared his story at our 2008 Saks Fifth Avenue event and all over our charity: ball 2008 walls. His photo still hangs tall in our NYC office. And you may have seen him on the cover of our Water for Schools booklets…

Esther was so excited to see him again — at the well that transformed his community.

Read Jean Bosco’s story from 2008 here. We’ll have photos and a video of the reunion soon, so stay tuned.
