 Elida stands behind the counter of the water kiosk she runs in Tsarahonenana village, Madagascar and smiles.She’s just one of the women providing clean, safe water – and building a better future for their families – through the water kiosks we’re helping communities set up in rural Madagascar.”My best moment was the first day we officially opened the kiosk, when I was selling water for the first time,” she says.”We had a little opening ceremony with some villagers – people getting water, buying things. I was really happy as everybody supported me and I was finally able to run my own business.”
