Choose the journey: Cheru walks for dirty water

A first-year kindergarten student, Cheru walks with her older siblings and other children to dig for water to carry to school. On the way home, she stops to fill her tea kettle with water to carry to her mother. She walks more than 6K (3.7 miles), the average distance women and children walk for water in sub-Saharan Africa.
