Throughout Ethiopia, children walk miles to get water for their families. They often travel barefoot to the nearest source, only to stand in line and scoop dirty water into an empty pail. Then they make the trip back—now carrying an extra 40 pounds of water. For many, a round-trip can take hours, and it's only one of many in a day. This not only endangers children, it also robs them of the opportunity to attend school. charity: water, a Caterpillar Foundation partner, works to provide clean water for communities throughout Ethiopia. These projects ensure that children are able to attend school, and give back time, health and hope to families in need.
