Anatercia's daily life was consumed with household chores to support her struggling family. She had to walk nearly five hours every day to collect water, leaving her with little time to focus on her studies. 

For many children and girls in marginalised communities across the globe, this is a daily reality. As Anatercia juggled more and more responsibilities, her education began to suffer, with her dreams of becoming a nurse becoming further out of reach.   

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, Anatercia and her family joined the Integrated Rural Development Program, supported by Caritas Australia’s partner, Caritas Regional Chokwe. They installed an irrigation system on their farm as well as taps throughout the village. Anantercia no longer has to travel long distances to collect water and can focus on her education and gaining the skills to build a better life for herself and her community.

“We have run out of food several times. I help my family with the farm, cooking, fetching water and firewood, and caring for my mother. I also assist my grandfather in feeding, as he has difficulty in picking up utensils due to blindness.”
