Faces of Water
18 years old • Sweetwaters Secondary School
Kantai is an advocate for human rights, enjoys history and politics, and working towards becoming a lawyer when she’s older. Her studies, however, used to be interrupted when she would miss class to gather water. Now, Kantai is able to fully focus on her schoolwork again with the reliable clean water well we drilled in March 2021 at her school.
“There was not enough water to wash our hands. But now, the water problem that led to not being able to wash or use the bathrooms will come to an end. There will be no more leaving classes to go fetch water. And, there will be proper hygiene. Water is life!
