Month in pictures: Time to be a girl - WaterAid turns on the taps!

Earlier in the summer we introduced Solo, who lives in Antohobe in Madagascar. For the last few months she has been a central part of WaterAid’s To Be a Girl campaign, which has been raising money to change the story for girls all around the world by having safe water to drink and toilets. Over the last few weeks work has been taking place in Solo’s village and the community can now enjoy what was promised to them. Solo, like the rest of her family, her best friend Ze, and the rest of her community can now lead healthier, better educated lives. With the time to go to school and the knowledge they won’t get sick from the water, this truly has changed the story for girls here.

“I am really excited about this as I have never seen something like this before. I often stay here to look at the construction.” Ze with her lovely smile, pouring water in the barrel for the drill. Ambohimatsinjo village, Antohobe commune, Vakinankaratra region, Madagascar. August 2014.
