My Name is Batire

I am a 16 year old girl

Batire and family live in a community located in the south of Ethiopia. Houses are known as 'tukuls' and are round in shape and made of mud and wood, with a grass-thatched roof. Green vegetation in the form of coffee plantations and trees such as eucalyptus cover much of the area. Safe water is inaccessible. As a result, people use water from local rivers which are polluted. The nearest health facility is located far away. Because there is no public transportation people walk long distances to obtain medical treatment. Schools are also located outside of the community and are overcrowded. These families are working hard to improve their lives. Your help is greatly appreciated.
