Running Water

Running Water

Running water inside of one’s house is still rare in Benin. My estimate is that less than 10% of people in our town, only 15 minutes from Benin’s capital of Porto Novo, have running water. Like Jen and I, many people draw water from a well. As there is no city water system, running water is achieved by pumping water from a well up into a tank like this.
