Rootworks aims to provide rural communities in Somalia and Ethiopia with access to clean drinking water by building Sand Dams.


Rootworks Presents…

The Water Project Ottawa Screening

Rootworks is proud to present ‘The Water Project’. The Water Project is a documentary that follows the journey of 3 friends from Toronto who decided to travel back home to Ethiopia and Somalia. They witness mass starvation and hunger fuelled by 2 years of drought. Despite the many challenges they face, they do not falter from their one purpose: find a sustainable solution.
