14 year old Dadi feels lucky because her school has safe water and toilets, and that means more time doing the things she loves like playing netball with her friends.
"After school I came home to fetch water for our dinner. Some afternoons I collect shells from the nearby mangroves for our dinner."
Dadi is proud that she never has to miss school and dreams of one day looking after her parents.
Just a few years ago life was very different. The women and children in Martha’s village would collect dirty water from a distant location that would often make them sick.
After establishing a Water Committee and working with WaterAid the community now have access to clean water via a hand pump that is easy to maintain and sustain.
“It’s a lucky generation, the generation of my children and my grandchildren are lucky to get clean water so close and easily. I am happy for them.”
During the dry season the tank in Carlinda’s village is often empty. As a result, Carlinda must travel long distances to collect water where she is at risk to poisonous snakes and wild animals.
The water she collects is dirty and often makes her children sick with diarrhoea. One of Carlinda’s five children has died due to diarrhoea caused by unsafe water.
Carlinda’s village has established a Water Committee and is working with WaterAid to improve access to safe water in her community.
“Having …clean water that is close will help reduce the diarrhoea and disease.”
