Four university students journey to a remote village in Uganda to discover a radically simple solution to an urgent global problem. Using only the power of the sun, SODIS (Solar Water Disinfection) is cheap, effective, and has the potential to save a million lives. 'A Simpler Way' explores the need for simple, affordable solutions to global development issues and the role of personal experience in meaningful, transformative education.
