Life in Neshado Huleti: Abinet’s Story

Abinet is in grade 7 at Bobe Hora Primary and Secondary School. At the age of 18, she is old for her grade, but eager to learn and go to a university in the future.

Constant sickness and long walks for water put Abinet behind in her education, but she has not given up.

Abinet has two sisters and and two brothers, and each day they take turns fetching water from a contaminated spring over an hour from her village. She and her neighbors suffer from painful stomach aches and diarrhea.

She is passionate about women’s health, and wants to be a doctor when she grows up.

“Without safe water and our own bathrooms, women on their menstrual cycles sometimes don’t go to school,” she said. “The girls at school are usually chosen to fetch the water from the river, and we miss classes. With safe water, we could compete for rank freely with our brothers.”

When Abinet has time between studying, gathering water, and preparing food, she hangs out with her friends in Neshado Huleti village.

You can help Abinet’s family and others in Neshado Huleti 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.

For Neshado Huleti, clean water means students like Abinet can drink clean water and pursue higher education with fewer obstacles in their way.

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.

October 05, 2018: Village Certified ODF

When each household builds and uses their own functioning restroom, a community earns an “Open Defecation Free” (ODF) certification. Each country has their own processes and celebration for ODF villages, and it’s a huge accomplishment towards improved health for everyone.

May 01, 2018: CLTS Complete

In Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS), each village goes through exercises that reveal how their current practices are making them sick, such as identifying all the places where feces are contaminating their environment. This important step equips communities to be knowledgeable about their health and willing to make changes.

All gifts are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Contributions are solicited with the understanding that Lifewater has complete control over the use of all donated funds. Our Board-approved policy is that all gifts designated for a specific project be applied to that project, with up to ten percent used for administrative and fundraising expenses. Occasionally we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need.
