Photojournal: Getting water in Africa
Child's work

Bundaa Joseph, 10, Kampala village, Tanzania

I have no school. I would like to go but I am the only child at home so if I go to school there will be no one to help my parents.

I have to fetch the water. I use the water here for drinking, bathing and washing my clothes. My parents always get sick with diarrhoea - I don't know why - but they have to go to hospital. I'm not happy using this water. Some people use it like a toilet.
