A few months ago I found myself walking in the footsteps of Selam, a 13-year-old Ethiopian girl whose lack of access to clean drinking water challenged every aspect of her life. I wasn't standing in Ethiopia; I was standing in a mall in downtown New York City with a Samsung VR headset strapped on to my face. During the 9-minute film I found myself immersed in Selam’s view of the world, sharing a sliver of her challenges. Since I’ve had access to clean water my entire life it’s hard to imagine a world without it. The urge to help lingered long after taking off the VR headset.
How might I actually share water with Selam?
