“I like to fetch water for mom,” Kamama says.
Often she goes with Pkiror, her older brother, and three-year-old sister. “He takes the wheelbarrow and Cheptiach rides. It’s fun.”
Because there’s clean water available close by, Kamama is seldom sick, she bathes every day, and her mother has the time and water she needs to grow fruit and vegetables.
“Life became much easier when the water came,” says Julia Lolem, Kamama’s mother.
The family lives in a community served by World Vision’s Mtelo Water Project, which opened in 2015. The gravity-fed system pipes clean water from a mountain spring to 15 public kiosks, serving about 880 as well as community school, church, and health clinic.
In sub-Saharan Africa, 325 million people don’t have access to an improved water source. Many walk an average of 6k daily to collect water from polluted rivers and ponds.
