Fetching water from the well used to be a task that took three hours. Now, for the residents of this dry and remote village in northwestern Niger, it takes just a few minutes.


A year ago, UNICEF, the Government of Niger and partners installed this safe-water system in Chinwaghari.


SOUNDBITE Aïchatou Mahamma, 28-year-old mother of 6 (Tamacheq),
"Before, it was difficult because the well was far from the village. Mothers had to walk long hours to get water, and children were often sick. Sometimes, there was even no water at all. We had to spend the night at the well, far from the village and wait until the morning to have water. Water means life for us. What is happening in our village through this project gives us hope."

 
Good sanitation has improved the health of children. But this system has another upside: children who once spent time fetching water can now go to school."
