"Meet the 23-Year-Old Bringing Clean Water To Her Navajo Community"

"The residents of Baca, a small town on the Navajo Reservation in New Mexico, are like those of any other town in America. There are families both big and small, single mothers and fathers, elders who play Bingo at the community center and elders who yell at kids in their front yard, veterans and store clerks and teachers and students.

But the residents of Baca live without clean, running water in their homes."

Firefighter Annie Begay installs water systems in homes that lack running water as part of her job as a field coordinator for DigDeep, a group fighting water poverty.
