Photographer Esther Havens and the charity: water team head back to Murinja Village, Rwanda, to find a boy whose story has crossed the world to raise money for water projects.

His name is Jean Bosco. He's 17 years old and used to collect water every day from a muddy swamp. Now, he and the hundreds in his village drink from a charity: water well.

Just two years of clean water had transformed this village. Jean Bosco and his friends told us they don't get sick like they used to. Elders explained the hope they had for the future, with less diseases. Women told us they could feel clean for the first time.
