Women Carrying Water: Taking the weight off, one WaterBall at a time

We say it a lot at WaterStep, but it’s true: Too many women and children in the developing world walk long distances every day to get water for their families.

Loice, in Kenya, was one of these women. A mother of 6, she walked to a river by her house to collect water in a plastic bottle that she carried on her head. Because of the tremendous support of our wonderful donors, WaterStep sent out the first of the new WaterBalls to our partners in Ethiopia and Kenya last month in conjunction with World Water Day.

Loice was one of the first to try it out and tell us what she thought. The video below is from her first trip to the river.
