We have a huge and inspiring task ahead of us. By the year 2015, together we shall have contributed to halving the number of people on earth who do not have access to safe drinking water. Also by then we shall have halved the number of people living in poverty. Those are two of the Millennium Declaration Goals set by the UN General Assembly. These goals do not just show the tremendous responsibility we bear. The goals also point out how central water is for a decent life and a life in dignity.
