  • What's it like to be a 13 year old in Ethiopia?

    Thirteen year old Elmas Kassa lives in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

    "I collect water four times a day in a 20 litre clay jar. Its hard work." Elmas Kassa said. "I have never been to school as I have to help my mother so we can earn enough money. Our house doesn't have a bathroom so I wash once a week and go to the toilet down by the river behind my house. I usually go with my friends as we're supposed to go after dark when people can't see us."
