Faces of Water
11 years old • Tututha Primary School, Kenya
Ndanu wants to become a teacher because she loves working with the younger children in her community. Prior to the rainwater catchment system implemented in her community, the only access to water was a contaminated river and an unreliable well. Now that Ndanu has access to clean and reliable water, she can enjoy school more and doesn’t have to carry water from home.
“This water is important because I can’t shower without it. It also means that I don’t have to rely on the river as much for water.”
