Tapping Into a Better Life

Description

Meet Tigist, the head of a manual water well drilling team in Ethiopia.

Tigist Teshome, 20, is the head of a manual water well drilling team in Ethiopia.  

“The community has suffered from lack of water,” she says. “People thought women couldn’t do this. I thought, ‘We have to face this challenge.’”

"Because of the water shortage, people just drink water; they don’t wash with it. To wash or to do laundry they must walk for hours and hours."

Tigrist’s team drilled 14 wells in 2012, bringing fresh water to thousands of people.

"Whatever the challenge is — we will endure as long as we can solve the water problem," she says.
