Janjay is an energetic, smart, and curious little girl living in the small West African country of Liberia. She is responsible for collecting clean water for the household on a regular basis, but one day finds herself distracted by afternoon fun with a friend, which causes her to neglect her chores. She later discovers the seriousness of her actions and learns a life lesson about disobedience and the important role she plays in her family. Through humor and the use of local language, this story brings to light the global issue of access to clean-water sanitation that resonates with millions of girls around the world.
