Storyboard Text

  • I am Nya, and I walk hours a day to the pond and back to get water as our environment is very harsh and there is no other nearby water source.
  • The terrain I must walk through to get to the pond is arid, just like my home
  • " 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 had been brought by the young boys who looked after them" (14) 
  • A couple hours later, Nya returned home and prepared to make yet another journey to the pond.
  • "Take Akeer with you...she needs to learn." (20) She's 5 and will soon have to walk too.
  • One month later, the dry season came.
  • We have to go again to live at the lake camp when it is dry season for us.
  • I have to stay here, "Waiting for water...for hours at a time...everyday for five long months, until the rains came and...[we can] return home. (27)
