After a long time of drilling, water sprung out of the ground; They finally had water! But then Nya saw that the water was still brown and muddy. However, one of the workers reassured her and said that after the pour gravel and dig a little deeper, the water will be clean. Everyone was so happy they finally had clean, fresh water.

Once they poured the gravel they started to build the well. After the water was clean and ready to drink, people waited in line to get water. Nya thought while she waited. She was so happy that Akeer would never be sick because of the water ever again; No one would.
Nya is so excited when she hears there will be a school built soon that she will be able to go to. She is surprised because girls don't usually go to school for they have to go get water for their family. Now she can get an education and may never have to get water again.
Three years later, Nya knew how to read basic chapter books, and so did Akeer. She never did forget what it was like before the school was built. Her life changed so much and everyday when she wakes up, she thinks all of it is just a dream. She is so happy going to school and not having to walk five hours everyday for dirty water, and that is all thanks to Salva.
