With a water tap at home Amelia and her sister can do laundry – a service which earns them an income and allows Amelia’s children to attend school.
For Kontala, water flowing means time for sewing. Rather than spend hours each morning waiting in a line at the shared community source, Kontala waits on customers; hemming skirts, adding notions, and earning money for her family.
Sariati’s water tap has afforded her the time to work as a maid. She returns to her home in the evening, pleased she can earn a living helping make her home beautiful as well.
