Project Worthmore (PWM) is a nonprofit organization that seeks to improve the quality of life of Denver-area refugees from Burma by providing cultural mentorship and community supports. Started by Frank and Carolyn Anello in early 2011, PWM began as a makeshift response to the unmet needs of our refugee neighbors. Through prior experience as part of a small group working with a refugee family from Burma, the Anellos were familiar with the vast needs in this community. Be it teaching use of public transportation, registering children for school, going grocery shopping, and/or teaching English, there was always more that could be done but not always enough people to help do it. Abandoning the needs of this community was not an option, particularly when surrounded by such abundance and resources to help ameliorate these problems. Increasing awareness of the existence of our refugee neighbors and their needs was an initial priority. Fundraising, recruiting teams from churches and schools, gathering and distributing donations, setting up apartments for newly arrived refugee families and coordinating cultural mentorship teams all eventually became a part of this organization.

I chose to focus on Denver's Water Supply -- the logistic challenges involved in serving a large population, the problems inherent to a semi-arid habitat, the threats we face from normal conditions, and how those threats are exacerbated by Cilmate Change. I also wanted to take an admittedly very brief look into water's value as a source of beauty, recreation, and community-building, in addition to it's irreplaceable role in all Life on Earth.
