The average American family uses 400 gallons of water per day. A Kenyan family must survive on only 5 gallons per day … water collected from hand dug shallow wells that are shared with wild animals. Water that is then transported in a hand-made containers weighing 45 pounds and carried on average 6 miles per day, through dangerous barren territory, on the backs and heads of Kenyan women who are culturally bound to perform this task each and every day if they are to survive.
