Before she had access to clean water, Tencia used to spend the first half of every day walking and waiting in line to collect water from a river outside her village. It was never enough water for her family, and it left her very little time to earn money. As a single mom, life was incredibly challenging.
But thanks to supporters like you, all of that has changed.
Today, with a hand-pump in the middle her village, Tencia can collect as much clean water as her family needs. And better yet, she has plenty of time to focus on things that truly matter: like building her bread-making business and improving the future of her family.
