Last year on World Water Day, we introduced you to Beatrice: sister, daughter, future nurse.
Since that time, more than 1,000,000 people have explored her world via 360 video and witnessed the way access to clean water transforms communities.
Beatrice used to spend her days collecting water. Now, thanks to the help of @brita.canada, she has a water pump close by and time to go to school. ‘This small change has made all the difference to me.’ Tap the link in our bio to watch the video.
How is this for a #throwback Repost from our friend and #WEconomy co-author @holly_branson ‘Marc, Craig and I feel incredibly fortunate to have grown up surrounded by some brilliant mentors and role models—one of which visited the UK this week! Oprah Winfrey’s outlook and care for the world, and the people in it, is truly inspiring and something I know I will always aspire to.
Thank you for your support @oprah, we’re so grateful to have you as a mentor and friend.’

‘Stand up and speak out,’ @connorfranta urged a #WEday audience in London—and all those following along via livestream and social. Backstage, he pledged to fight for total acceptance—something we can all get behind.
