CBeebies Blog: Little Human Planet 12 - Collecting Water in Mali

Elen - Producer, Little Human Planet Elen - Producer, Little Human Planet | 17:00 UK time, Sunday, 20 February 2011

Little Human Planet follows the lives of young children from around the world, giving a glimpse to our CBeebies viewers of how their counterparts live wherever they be. A celebration of what makes children different and what makes them the same around the world in a colourful and often surprising voyage of discovery.


In this programme we travel to the scorching desert near Antogo in Mali where the Dogon people live. Water is drying up quickly up due to the fierce heat which has made water scarce and the people wait eagerly for the rains.

It is here we meet three year old Edjongon and her mum.  Edjongon helps her mum collect water from a deep open well.  With their vessels full of water they walk a long way to their home carrying the precious water on their heads. This is a daily routine for Edjongon and her mum.
