What can I do?
Aim to improve the key areas of your life first:
- Water: we all need clean water for drinking,
washing and cooking.
- Food: if you don't
have enough food, try to grow some - it is possible in a
small bag, or a window box.
- Cooking: is collecting firewood too much of a
struggle? Does fuel cost too much? You could
build yourself a fuel efficient cooking stove, and save
fuel, money, time and your health.
- Money: we all need money to buy things. If
we can't get a job the best way of earning money is to find
something to make or grow, or to provide a service that
other people will pay for - so start a business.
- Health: staying healthy is so important. So
if you have health problems try to improve your situation:
if malaria is a problem, try to buy and use a mosquito net.
If diarrhoea and sickness is a problem, try to develop a
cleaner water supply, build a latrine, and improve hygiene -
even washing hands after the toilet, and before cooking or
eating, can help.
- Sanitation: we all need to go to the toilet.
If all you have is the bush outside, try to build a latrine.
