In April 2008 WaterAid and Ecover launched a partnership to work in Ethiopia, one of the world's poorest and driest countries. With Ecover contributing £90 000 of funding over a three year period they aim to help 14,750 people gain access to safe water and sanitation.
In February 2009 I was invited to travel with WaterAid + Ecover to see the progress of their projects in the northern Hintalo Wajerat region. It was an extraordinary journey in search of clean water in a land of drought.
