Every day, Janet used to wake before the sun rose to walk one hour to a muddy river. She would fill her yellow jug with murky water in the same spot where cattle and goats come to drink. then hurry home to make it to school in time. She would repeat the same walk at dusk–and would often be too tired to finished her homework.

The water made he family sick; at least twice a year, someone in her family would get typhoid or intestinal parasites. But this Christmas, her local church got a water tank, and now she no longer has to spend hours a day gathering water that isn’t safe to drink.
