In January 2018, we traveled to Swaziland. We met Phetsile, a courageous single mom who gains access to safe water for the very first time, and Thandekile, a proud grandmother, and a member of her local water committee. Both women have big dreams for their communities. With your cardboard virtual reality viewer, you can meet these two inspiring women and experience the work Voss Foundation is doing in Africa from wherever you are.
