Nickelodeon’s series The HALO Effect is back with a brand-new episode tonight features extraordinary sisters Isabelle and Katherine Adams from Dallas, Texas.

Isabelle and Katherine help bring accessible clean water to people around the world using their love of origami. The Adams sisters started their organization, Paper for Water, five years ago after learning that girls in some countries don’t attend school because they spend their days hauling water, and that a child dies every 20 seconds from unclean water.  They decided to make a change by collecting donations to help build wells in impoverished countries and the United States in exchange for their origami ornaments.  Paper for Water partners with other non-profit organizations: Living Water International, to identify where a well should be placed in impoverished countries and which residents will help maintain it, and DIGDEEP to help Indian reservations in the United States gain better access to clean water.

Over the past four years, the Adams sisters have raised nearly $800,000 to fund more than 100 water projects in countries around the world including Ethiopia, Ghana, Liberia, India, Mexico, Peru and Nicaragua.  In recognition of their outstanding commitment, Nickelodeon will award a $10,000 grant to the Adams’ organization.

Tonight’s episode follows the Adams sisters as they create origami ornaments to raise money for a Navajo reservation in need of clean water wells in New Mexico.

Make sure to tune in to The HALO Effect tonight, June 17th @ 8:30PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
