Helen Ewoton lives in the Turkana region of Kenya with her husband and five children. It is her job to haul water home for her family from a source that is an hour and a half away. "This water wonâ€™t come home by itself," she says, "Itâ€™s me who has to go and fetch it." Not only did the chore consume a good chunk of her day, the water wasnâ€™t always clean, and people would get sick. But a new well drilled near her home has changed her life.
