Two Can!


Two girls in Ethiopia shoulder the burden of collecting water for their family.

In Ethiopia, women and girls are responsible for collecting water. Especially in rural areas, they may spend several hours a day collecting and hauling water. And sometimes it’s impossible to get enough water to maintain a standard of health and hygiene. They may even have to drop out of school to carry water and still have enough time to do other chores.

It’s grueling work to be a water bearer. The jerrycans of water may weigh 30 pounds or more. Even worse, girls are at risk of sexual harassment or rape as they walk long distances.    

Water is life; and clean, pure water close to home can be a lifesaver for an Ethiopian girl.
