Water Carriers (No. 312)

First Aired Sunday, February 17, 2008

The Water Carriers is the story of Callie Blackwood, an American engineering student, and Nina Omwereme Oyamo, a 23-year old woman from the Shirali region of southwestern Kenya. The lives of these two women, from altogether different circumstances, intersect as Callie travels to Kenya along with an organization known as Engineers Without Borders. Their mission: to install an aquifer-driven well in the hopes of delivering clean drinking water to the Shirali area.
