Water Well is a “Great Privilege”

Didi Hara Village, Ethiopia


Dilo is a 33-year-old mother of three children, living in Didahara village. When she had a discussion with our Transformational Community Development (TCD) worker, she said that as a child she was traveling for 30 minutes to an hour to get water for drinking and cooking. It was hard for her, working and carrying water for long distances every day.


She did this for 25 years. Now the new water well is just a five-minute walk from her house. “This is a great privilege for me,” she said. Most of the villagers are also very happy with this new water well. Around 80 households will benefit from it. If we raise more funds, we plan to build more wells in other villages.
