A Year Later: Dreams of Teaching!

Collecting water from Wesonga Spring used to be challenging for 11-year-old Abel M.

"Getting water before was very hard, especially when it rained. The place used to be slippery, and most of the time, I used to fall with my jerrycan. It was time-consuming, and [I] used to spend most of my time at the water point," said Abel.

But since the spring's protection last year, things have become much easier.

"Getting water now has been made easier and enjoyable. With the stairs, it's more interesting to go for several trips to get water. During my free time, I clean the spring. This is a hobby I developed after the spring was protected," shared Abel.

"This water has helped me live a healthy life. With this, I have spent most of my time at school, unlike before, when I used to be absent from school due to sickness. This has enabled me [to] perform better in my studies. I believe when I grow up, the dream of becoming a teacher will come to pass," concluded Abel.
