Meet Birhan. She is a representative of the Tabia Women's Affairs Council in Gonok and a mother of two. Her oldest attends fifth grade at Genti Primary School, which was constructed by Glimmer in 2011. Birhan currently makes the long journey to collect water at the bottom of a steep gorge twice a day — a trip which takes her a total of four hours every day. She says it is like a dream to imagine getting clean water in the area. "We did not think it could really happen."
