Linda M., 18, recalled what life was like in Chimoroni before her community’s spring was protected last year.
"Queuing was the biggest challenge when this spring was still unprotected, especially during the dry seasons. I could queue for close to an hour just to fetch water," said Linda.
But life is much simpler, and water collection is much faster for Linda and the other community members in Chimoroni now.
"Since the spring was protected, I have never queued, since now I can fetch directly from the pipe," said Linda.
Having ready access to water from the protected spring has made a difference for Linda, allowing her time to attend to other important things.
"I no longer waste time at the spring; therefore, [I've been] saving a lot of time. [I've] spent most of it reading since I was [an exam] candidate [at school]," Linda said.
Thank you for helping Linda access clean water and have time to concentrate on improving her academic performance.
Right now, there are others just like her in neighboring communities that desperately need safe water access. Your support will immediately go to work to provide a clean water project - and we can’t wait to introduce you to the next person you’ll help.
