Picture for a moment the life of Meliyio Tompoi, a 35-year-old mother of six children, who lives in the Narok district in southwest Kenya. Most of the area’s water points are dry, and she must walk 25 kilometers to collect water. This issue highlights stories like that of Meliyio as well as resources and programs with an emphasis on water and women and gender. [authors abstract]
