Women shepherds in Somaliland determined to change their oddsListen /
Water is a central concern year round in Somaliland, a self-declared autonomous state in northern Somalia.
Over a third of households in Somaliland's urban areas do not have access to clean drinking water and the proportion is far higher in rural areas, the UN says.
Beerato is a major watering hole for surrounding villages, when drought isn't severe.
A project financed by the UN Democracy Fund, UNDEF, is helping rural women there change their odds for survival.
