Spencer Dusebout talks about a simple challenge and how he and his friends as travelling teenagers noticed that some of the people in countries they were visiting were spending most of their time gathering water that was dirty and insufficient for drinking. They decided to form a nonprofit and now have brought clean water to 200k+ people in Africa, Latin and South America, and Asia.

Spencer Dusebout, president of Hands4Others, a non-profit bringing fresh water to global villages, proves that youth doesn’t disqualify anyone from making an impact. He co-founded H4O at the age of 16. H4O is supplying fresh water to areas of the world that did not have it.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
