11 Dec 2018 This Family Overcomes Daily Obstacles Thanks to Water Tap Installation
For generations, women in Jakarta, Indonesia have spent up to six hours daily making tireless trips to collect safe water. One local, Sariati, used to spend a large portion of her income on purchasing water from a vendor to mitigate the water-related issues. Through small affordable loans from Water.org’s program WaterCredit, Sariati was able to construct a water tap on her property. As a housekeeper, Sariati can now fill pots and vessels with safe water, and apply her savings towards tuition for her son’s schooling and healthier food for her family.
