Chemi Chemi is the Swahili word for a place where water springs from the depths of the earth. The water from the chemi chemi nurtures all the land around it.
This work is a metaphor on the unique relationship that women have with water. In many parts of the world, they constantly confront the challenge of managing scarce water resources. They use this precious water to nurture the land, and raise crops which nurture their societies.
