Clean water for a village

Monica believes she can be a nurse to help others.

A new borehole means Monica, 15, doesn’t have to walk 2 km for water and, instead, has time and energy to spend in class.

“I used to be so tired from fetching water twice every morning before going to school. I’d get to school late, fall asleep in class, and get in trouble with my teachers. I always felt sad. The new borehole means I now walk 300 metres for water — not 2 km! I get to school very early and can focus on my studies.

I dream of helping my community, especially children, to access good healthcare. Education will open the door for me.”
