What Is the Crisis?
For children, the demands of retrieving water for their families leave little time or energy for studies. In addition, children are often too sick from water-related diseases to go to school, or the embarrassment of diarrhea keeps them home. People in the horn cite lack of education as one of the main obstacles to reducing poverty. This is why issues like water, hygiene and sanitation are key to improving education.
