Women ARE the water system

 

All the water for cooking, washing, agriculture, and even for drinking is fetched and carried from Lake Victoria exclusively by women. To fill their 5-gallon buckets, they must wade through 50 feet of thick hyacinth growth, infested with snakes (some poisonous) and leeches. When full, the containers weigh 48 pounds and are carried on the women’s heads, sometimes for miles, to their homes.
The women cannot be empowered unless we solve the water problem. Having an accessible water supply will save the women hundreds of labor intensive hours, freeing them to pursue income generating activities. It will also serve the community at large, by greatly reducing typhoid and other water-borne diseases, presently very rampant in the village.
