Searching for Water in Ethiopia: A Day in the Life

Access to clean water is about more than survival: It is about giving kids the time they need to be children — to learn, play and be happy. For children to enjoy this precious time, families need access to safe water close to where they live. Aysha, 13, lives in a remote region of Ethiopia beset by chronic water shortages and affected by the El-Nino driven drought. The lack of water has contributed to increased school absences as children like Aysha travel long distances to obtain water. Across the country, 3.9 million drought and flood-affected people need access to safe water and some are currently surviving on less than 5 litres of water a day.
