CAN YOU SEE ME? -- “Every day, we spend three hours collecting and carrying water,” said Elezete (age 9), who lives in the rural village of Mate Restu in Timor-Leste. She rises each morning at 5 a.m. to begin the first of several 30-minute treks she makes daily to the nearest water source, an unprotected mountain spring. She then walks 90 minutes to school, frequently arriving late and tired. Fetching water often falls to girls in Timor-Leste. © UNICEF/James Alcock www.unicef.org/...
