Everyday People Initiating Change
Tennille Amor started E.P.I.C. (Everyday People Initiating Change) with one of her closest friends, Alexi Panos, when they learned about the immense water crisis in the world. 785 million people still don't have access to a basic water supply. Globally, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source contaminated with feces. Women and children in the developing world spend over 200 million hours every day collecting water from distant, often polluted sources (for up to 10 miles at a time). The weight of water that women in the developing world carry on their heads is commonly 20kg (or 45 pounds), the same as the maximum airport luggage allowance. More people die each year from unsafe water than from all forms of violence, including war.
E.P.I.C. (Everyday People Initiating Change) is a 501c3 organization committed to bringing safe, clean drinking water to rural villages in Tanzania, Africa. In addition to implementing clean water wells, E.P.I.C. provides hygiene and sanitation education programs, and supports community growth in each of the villages where they drill. Through their Fellowship Program, E.P.I.C. has become a global movement that encourages and inspires Everyday People to actively work on Initiating the Change that they wish to see in the world.
