Just The Beginning

Change and Community in Haralo, Ethiopia

Until recently, during the dry season, the women of Haralo left their homes each day before the sun and their children awoke to begin a ten mile walk. They returned nine hours later with a few gallons of water.

Not anymore.

When asked what has changed since the people of Haralo established a year-round source of safe water last year, a older man named Turo replied, “This is just the beginning of the change.”
