Eva is 15 and lives in Malinzanga, Tanzania. Eva and her classmates have big ambitions for their future, but without access to basic things like clean water, it's hard for them to stay in school and achieve them. In 2014, young people in Malinzanga wrote to their leaders asking for clean water at their school.
They are still waiting.
Eva's petition has NOw reached 150,000 SIGNATURES. Thank you to everyone that has supported Eva.
