The bustling village of Robit is located in the Northwestern part of Ethiopia in the Amhara region. Robit is home to more than 11,000 people and is always a-buzz with activity. A year ago, there was zero access to clean water Villagers would walk to the only water source in the community- a river turned brown by the heavy amount of mud that it carries. In 2011, 53 water projects were completed there, giving Robit and the surrounding villages clean water for the first time EVER. Evangeline International had the privilege of funding 2 Hand-Dug Wells in Robit, and we watch with anticipation as 11,000 lives are changed- renewed with the hope of a better future!
