A new well is now under construction complete at the Kimangeti Secondary School.

This community is located in the Kabras West Location in Western Kenya, about 34km from Kakamega.

GPS — LAT:00.465250N  LONG: 34.885490E

The water project at this very large school will serves about 1,520 students and a total of 1,800 people in the surrounding area.  A water committee consisting of 9 men and 3 women has been formed and the community has contributed about $300USD to acquire surveys and permits for the new well.

The current former water source was an unprotected and collapsing hand dug well that was inadequate and of poor water quality due to its age.

This new well is being funded by:

Mats H. – Sweden
Faith Lutheran Church – Rochester, NY
