Drinking water is life’s most basic need. Yet nearly a billion people on our planet do not have access to it. The Samburu of NW Kenya are traditionally a nomadic tribe, but the government has settled them so that they can be taxed and documented. Now with the drought, they can no longer move with their livestock to another area. Young girls carry 43 pound jerry cans on their backs to bring the minimum water needed for the family. New wells will help ease the lives of these girls, and bring peace to their land again.
