Genesis, 4
Suipira, Ecuador

Genesis lives in a mountain village in which many young children have died form waterborne illnesses. At the age of 18, her mother, Gloria, persuaded the fiercely independent members of her community to unite and fix their age-old water problems. She convinced CARE to donate the necessary materials then organized over 70 "mingas" (community work parties) to dig miles of trenches and assemble the system. Suipira now has the most sophisticated water system in the area – an incredible achievement, especially for a young woman in this culture.
