Not far from the school is a water point under construction.  The women who live near it are all unemployed.  They told me they have to spend two hours a day fetching water, for which they have to pay.  This water point will change their lives.  They will soon be receiving a start up loan from Partners for Change and they want to open a small coffee house in the area.  They told me to come and try it out when I am next visiting.
