Belizean Children learning to wash their hands with clean water

This is the face of two Belizean children learning proper hygiene, and what it means to wash their hands to be able to prevent disease. These particular boys had never seen their own reflection until they were able to see this picture. I was involved with a group of students from my college to go to Belize in a few of the villages and repair their water wells so these children would no longer get sick from drinking brown, rusty, eco-li filled well water.
