Nya has just started to go and get water. She left her home about 10 minutes ago. This is her job every day to get water for her village. She has to walk 8 miles every day to get water.
Nya has now got the water and is about to head home. She has to balance the water on a jug on her head. She also has to walk several miles to get water.
Akeer gets sick from the unhealthy water from the pond. A doctor comes there and helps her. The doctor said that they need to boil the water to make it safe to drink.
After Akeer gets sick 2 men start talking to Nya's uncle about how they're going to get clean water. They decide that they are going to drill a well. The chief (Nya's uncle) agreed and they started almost immediately.
To drill they first have to lay down rocks and gravel. This is a lot of work because they also have to dig out the rocks because they can't drill through the the rocks. This is a very hard project, but when they're done they can an endless supply of clean and fresh water.
They can finally drill for water now. They have a large drill that look like a giraffe. All the tribe members are gathered around the drilling place hopeful that it will work.
