Atakavyotaka yeye ndo utakavyomlipa

A first video from Daraja, based on a much longer film by the Tanzania Women of Impact Foundation - TAWIF. It's a rough effort but with some powerful images and messages.

"bila pentsi maji hupati" - you have to fight for water so unless you're wearing trousers you won't get it

"mwalimu harudi tena" - newly appointed teachers don't stay long when they see how hard it is to get water

"atakavyotaka yeye ndo utakavyomlipa" - girls walking long distances to collect water are vulnerable to men with bad intentions
