Nya goes to her everyday walk to water and she realizes how dirty the water is from humans and animals bathing and drinking. She wants to find a new source of water for her village.
Community Lake Ahead
Oh no! "There may be contamination of the water with heavy metal" (thewaterproject.org)
I've never went west to find water, so I'm going to travel that way. Bye mom.
Please, Nya be safe!
Yay! I found water worthu of drinking for my family, and i want have to dig anymore!
"There was always so much life around the pond: other people, mostly women and girls, who had come to fill their own containers; many kinds of birds, ....herds of cattle that have been brought to good grazing by young boys who looked after them" Park, pg 14
Kaiya decided that her normal well wasn't healthy for her family to drink because, "Young children die from... malnutrition" and she doesn't want to lose a family member.
Nya finds a water source only 2 1/2 hours away from home, so she will no longer have to dig and walk 4 hours there and back! But there are vicious and hungry animals waiting for her on the journey back.
