As elsewhere in the world, men and women in Tigray often have different priorities for the future of their village. When designing “plan vivo maps” with women-only groups, it became clear that women generally wanted to invest most in drinking water infrastructure. This is no big surprise, since fetching water is a burden falling hardest on women. In Adi Lehsti, Meam Atali, and Gidmi Gestet, fetching water during the dry season required a walk of 4 hours per day. The opening of 3 new water reservoirs, paid using PVCs, has reduced that time consumption a sixfold.
