May The Water Flow

May the Water FlowAnahou and Mariama are retrieving water from the Tangarwashane faucet for their family.  Their lives have changed dramatically.  They used to fetch water from distant deep wells during the 9 month dry season, or marshes during the rainy season.  Today, their water is only a short walk and faucet away.  Even their animals have abundant water to drink.  Thanks to the existence of their borehole, Amman Imman is implementing a livestock program in Tangarwashane to grow the herds of the community, thereby improving food security.  Also, women can use the animals as a personal bank account, for trading purposes when they are in need of food, clothes, and medical supplies.
