- Women and girls in Ethiopia spend up to 4 hours a day collecting water, with full jerry cans weighing more than 40lbs.
- Over 60% of people living in rural Ethiopia still do not have access to clean water.
- Lack of access to clean water contributes to large-scale health problems, keeps girls out of school, and makes it nearly impossible for women to have economic earning power.

WEEMA commits to clean water access by constructing large water systems and repairing existing ones.
