Grace and Sarah were both attacked while walking to collect water for their family. Today, these extremely brave sisters are sharing their stories in hopes that it will help bring clean water and safety to every other girl in Uganda.
It Happened on the Walk for Water
It was an unseasonably warm summer night, and 14-year-old Grace was rushing down the narrow and secluded path from her village to Lake Victoria.
She had stayed late at school by herself, which put her entire evening behind schedule. By the time she got home, her sister, Sarah, had already left to collect water without her — which meant she’d have to go alone.
