Project 17 is a World Service series produced in collaboration with the The Open University, the United Kingdom's largest academic institution and a pioneer in distance learning.

This BBC video (4m 11s) tells the story of a seventeen-year-old living in The Republic of Rwanda, Africa who "set out to discover out why some rural communities in her country don't have access to clean water."

"Access to clean water for all" is goal six in the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, a set of targets announced in 2015 to transform lives around the world by 2030.

The introduction below the video notes that this "was filmed before the coronavirus pandemic" when social distancing and masks were not daily practices.
