Follow Her

I could barely keep up with her and had to trot as she sauntered with her water can!  This image from North Western Kenya in Pokot near Alale.  We were walking in to an area where families are mining for gold.  Sounds like a great idea, but in fact it means that Women and Children are doing all the work, the biggest part of which is hiking water in from 3km away; this also means that the children do not attend school because they are busy being Water Gophers!  In the coming weeks I will be writing on the experience of hiking into this remote area where we met families that were trying to sustain themselves by mining for gold.  It’s a hard life!
