In Cambodia, Yat, 13, and her friends used to haul water to their homes on a bike three times a day.
It took Yat at least 30 minutes to fetch water in several jugs. She would walk with her friends to get water that her family used for drinking, washing clothes, showering, and cleaning.
Villagers often had to line up and wait to fetch water from this place, especially during the dry season from March till July. Yat frequently went to school late because it took so long to fetch the water.
Now that World Vision has built a borehole well in her village, Yat is no longer late for school.
