Caption: Gathering water from a well. Livestock owners pull up water from a well to feed their animals. In order to obtain water, containers are put down a well where they are filled with water. The water is then poured into a earthern-walled trough which is lined with millet stalks to prevent the cascading water from damaging the trough walls. Families take turns using the troughs, which are rebuilt on a regular basis as they are washed away during the rainy season. Photographed in Chad.
