Nepapa Kishoiyan’s connection to the river runs deep. For her whole life, the 65-year-old Maasai woman relied on the river to provide this essential resource. For years, every day consisted of a 5-hour hike to the water source, a journey that not only consumed time and energy, but one which resulted in jerry cans brimming with unclean water. This dirty water would then be used for everything from drinking to cooking to taking care of the animals.
