"Why, when we've spent billions of dollars, millions of man-hours, do people in Somalia for example, have to go from one puddle in the road to another for water for their family and their livestock? Or in Kenya, the women each morning go out from the village trek six kilometers or more for a source of water to bring back to their family. And then when they find it its either a dried up mud-hole or some poor source, and then they carry it back to the village..." - Ron Denham

This is from a presentation at TEDxDU in 2010 made by Dr. Ron Denham, held at the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado.

Ron Denham affirms Rotary Internationals commitment to helping achieve the UN Millennium Development Goal that calls for a 50 percent reduction in the number of people with insufficient access to safe water and sanitation by 2015. This crisis now claims more than two million lives each year, a majority of them children. 
About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
