Faces of Water
16 years old • Daaba, Kenya
Fridah’s favorite subject is mathematics because she is very good at calculating and hopes to be a teacher when she grows up. Her favorite hobby is reading storybooks. For Fridah, a lack of access to clean water has meant that she has had to miss school to fetch water, has gotten sick from their water source, and has had her water rationed according to what time of day it is.
“My hope in life is for a better future”, and with the Well Aware water project implemented in 2021, Fridah has had the opportunity for just that. With reliable access to clean water, she does not have to skip school to walk for water, can focus on her dream of being a teacher, and never has to fear water insecurity again.
