When Oprah visits Ntombifuthi, she tries one of her chores. Because her home has no running water, the 13-year-old is responsible for getting water from a pump several times a day and carries the large bucket on her head. Oprah doesn't make it very far. "I literally could not do it. I could not physically even pretend to do it and had to take the bucket off my head," Oprah says. "I was carrying half of what she was carrying."
