Faces of Water
15 years old • Atot, Kenya
Meet 15-year-old Emmanuel from the community of Atot, Kenya. With the new well drilled there in September 2022, Emmanuel will no longer have to fetch water from the river three times a day. This will give him more time to focus on becoming a “doctor, to treat people in the community.”
Because there has been a lack of development in the community without clean water, there are currently no toilets and no hand-washing facilities. But now, with clean water, the community will be able to build more sanitation facilities. Emmanuel will have access to better hygiene and can thoroughly enjoy attending school!
“Water is life. We can use it for cooking, cleaning, and showers.”
