Faces of Water


12 years old • Katumani Primary School, Kenya

Patience helps out around the house by fetching water and firewood, cleaning the compound, and washing utensils. To fetch water for drinking and cleaning, she has had to walk 4 km each way. With the new water system, she’s excited to have water for drinking, irrigation, and crops, and to spend less time collecting water so she can spend more time on her studies. Patience hopes to become a teacher so she can give back to her community which she loves!

“Water means life to me because animals and crops will die when there is no water.”
