Women and girls in most rural part of Ethiopia spend hour in fetching water. They travel a long distance to cover and even then the water was not clean enough to drink. Lack of access to safe drinking water takes a big toll on children, compromising their health, welfare, and even their education. They are also spending considerable amount of their income for treatment and reduce productivity during illness. The problems exacerbated for people with disability, marginalized, drought prone areas, geographically remote and disadvantaged groups generally.
With this in mind, Plan International Ethiopia is working on to ensure a supply of clean drinking water and improve sanitation sustainably by providing infrastructure and trainings for project stakeholders. Accordingly, over the last 15 years a total of 77,093 people are accessed with potable water supply at rural and pre urban communities of Plan’s intervention areas. Moreover, 27,534 school children are also accessed with safe WASH facilities in their school compound.
This short documentary film is produced to show Plan International Ethiopia and Amhara Regional Water Resources Development Bureau strong collaboration and contribution in responding to clean water needs of Lalibela community.
