waterwednesday photo of the day – Wednesday Jan 5 2011
Meet Dhahabu Kazungu, a 22 year old mother of 2 who lives in the tiny village of Bamba in rural coastal Kenya. Dhahabu invited me into her home where we spoke for a while of what life is like for her as a busy mother. Dhahabu rises before dawn so she can make a fire and take a 60 minute walk to get water for the family breakfast. She usually goes with a friend and they make the trip another couple of times during the day. “Water is the most difficult thing about living here.” She dreams of better development within her family so that her children are educated and do better.
