Tigray, Ethiopia

Tigray is one of the most drought prone regions in Ethiopia. In Tigray, only 48 percent of people can access clean water – ten percent less than the national average. Women and children often walk two or more hours each day across steep, rugged terrain to collect water from polluted rivers for their households. The majority of families are forced to survive on a strict ration of about five liters of water per day. In addition, more than 60 percent of the population practices open defecation, due primarily to lack of adequate toilets. As a result, more than 250,000 children in Ethiopia die each year from water- and sanitation-related diseases. LEARN MORE
