A Long Walk To Water displays the women's role in a low-income country and how they are required to live their life. 

Nya, a young Nuer girl from South Sudan, doesn't attend school because she is tasked with fetching water for her family every day. In addition, many girls have a lack of access to healthcare, and in turn are suffering from stomach pains, fever, and many waterbourne diseases.

Lunapads has a program in which many organizations can purchase subsidized, reusable products to distribute with clean water sources for the use of women.
