Thirsty Planet

Scientists say most people on Earth will first experience climate change in terms of water -- either too much or too little. This documentary explores some of the most pressing water problems and some innovative solutions by visiting two countries where water issues are critical: India and Israel. A vast and ecologically diverse country, India suffers from water problems found across the globe: flooding, drought, pollution, and lack of access by the poor. In Israel, a combination of cutting-edge technology and sweeping government policy has largely solved the nation's long struggle with water scarcity. But the benefits of abundant water are not shared equally throughout Israel and the West Bank.

From: Ann G., Santa Fe, NM

The 15 page outline describing "The Village" for low income mothers and children has been attached in the picture section of this website. The Village includes structured learning activities in a green sustainable environment. It is a community that enables mother with education and skills to become financially independent and off public assistance within 4 years. This is where everyone helps each other.

If you would like me to e-mail this document to you, please contact me with an e-mail address so that I can forward this proposal.
