He’s learned how to submit a sanitation survey through his phone. Kenya is leading the way in mobile banking and we want to help Kenya pave the way for mobile monitoring of water points. We can monitor functionality of water points and collect data with a cell phone, airtime, sweat equity and a great mobile monitoring app by mWater. Training is going great and we even had the chance to conduct the first surveys! 

A New Well for St Emmanuel Church


St Emmanuel Kapng’etuny Church in Kenya was getting their water  from gravity piped water from Kipkaren Township Water project. The dam is located 1.5km away from the church compound. The water was turbid and wasn’t receiving any treatment before being released to the community hence, the water was only good for animals to drink and irrigation purposes.
