Challenge

In recent decades, Ethiopia has faced famine, drought, political instability and war. Although peace has returned, the nation remains developmentally weak, and over 50 million Ethiopians don’t have access to safe water. Most rural families survive on fewer than five liters of water per day and walk up to four hours to collect it from open sources.

Budget

10000 euros
