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.

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

Abinet and her four siblings 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 spends time 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 families in 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.

Sponsor Neshado Huleti village today.
