Kababush’s students and her five-month-old son are her life. They are the future of Ethiopia, and yet so many of her students at Murango Primary must miss school because they do not have safe water.

Kababush Kayiso is a teacher at Murango Primary school, a two-hour walk from her home. Before she walks to work, she gathers water at the village spring; the water is not safe for drinking.

“Many students drop out, or they are absent for more than two weeks from school, and when they are there, they’re not actively participating because they are sick,” she said.

Young girls are especially affected by the school’s lack of safe bathrooms and clean water.

“When they are on their menstrual cycles, they do not come to school,” she said.

Her husband, Amare, is the school director at Murango Primary. Their jobs provide just enough money for them to eat each day, but like their neighbors, they suffer from the contaminated water.

Families in Alawa Anidi experience typhoid and diarrhea regularly. When it gets severe, they go to the clinic to seek treatment, an astronomical cost for every family.

You can help Alawa Anidi today. Your gift will provide health training for each household, plus a new, safe water source near their village.

Lasting change means more than just building a well. Local Lifewater staff will work house by house to teach healthy habits and share the love of Christ with everyone. With clean water, families can work and save more. For families in Alawa Anidi, clean water means the children can spend their time in school, learning, growing, and making a way out of poverty.

Here’s what happens when you sponsor a village water project through Lifewater:

Partner with a village. Your gift kickstarts a community water project.
Teach healthy habits. Small changes make a big impact on family health.
Build a well. The village contributes up to 15% for construction.
Measure impact. Local staff track success and provide support.
Engage the church. We equip local churches to love their community.

Sponsor Alawa Anidi village today.
