-We're off on a colourful journey around the world.

0:00:410:00:45

CHILD: I wonder who we're going to meet today.

0:00:450:00:49

This village is in a big country called Mali, in Africa.

0:00:510:00:56

-This is Edjongon...

-SHE SPEAKS IN DIALECT

0:00:580:01:01

-Hello!

-..and she's three years old.

0:01:010:01:05

She's going to help her mum collect water from a well.

0:01:050:01:09

They have to collect the water every day.

0:01:090:01:13

Mum has a plastic carton on a long rope

0:01:160:01:19

to collect the water from the well.

0:01:190:01:22

She then pulls and pulls it back up

0:01:220:01:26

and the carton is full.

0:01:260:01:28

-It looks like hard work for Mum!

-It does.

0:01:280:01:31

Then she pours the water into some pots.

0:01:310:01:35

Mum does this until all the pots and buckets are full.

0:01:350:01:40

MUM SPEAKS IN DIALECT

0:01:460:01:48

And now Mum is filling Edjongon's blue bucket with water.

0:01:480:01:53

What's Mum doing now?

0:01:570:01:59

She's taking Edjongon's scarf and folding it up into a ball.

0:01:590:02:04

Just like a little cushion for her head.

0:02:040:02:07

This will make carrying the water easier and more comfortable.

0:02:070:02:12

Mum's turn now! She has a big pot of water to carry.

0:02:150:02:20

It looks very heavy.

0:02:200:02:22

Oh, it does.

0:02:220:02:24

Mum must be really strong.

0:02:240:02:27

Yes, but she's had lots of practice.

0:02:270:02:31

And off they both walk to carry the water back home.

0:02:310:02:35

It's quite a long way.

0:02:350:02:37

On and on they walk...

0:02:390:02:42

..being careful not to spill any of that precious water.

0:02:430:02:48

-They're doing a great job.

-They are.

0:02:480:02:53

They know exactly what they're doing.

0:02:530:02:56

They've done it lots of times before.

0:02:560:02:58

Look! Two donkeys!

0:03:080:03:11

-Hello!

-Hello!

0:03:110:03:13

Ha-ha!

0:03:130:03:15

On and on they climb.

0:03:200:03:22

-It can't be easy - climbing and carrying water.

-No.

0:03:240:03:28

It looks very steep.

0:03:280:03:31

Up and up they go.

0:03:320:03:37

Nearly there now.

0:03:370:03:39

Here, home at last.

0:03:410:03:44

Bye!

0:03:500:03:51
