Today the water flowed to the different distribution points throughout Iyoli Village. The pump, powered by solar technology, was turned on yesterday and quietly, without any fanfare, water filled the sim tank. This morning the taps were opened and word spread throughout the village that they could come and fill their buckets.
I have dreamed about this day for many years wondering if it would ever happen. Today it happened as I quietly moved around the village with my camera.
…and the emotional intensity from the challenges we faced dissolved in the water when the taps turned on.
