Eshienga Primary School Well

picture-008There’s a new well at the Eshienga School in Western Kenya.

I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing better than seeing young students tossing clean water around in celebration of new found freedom.

These students no longer have to walk miles for dirty water. Instead, clean, safe drinking water is just steps away…thanks to students and individuals just like themselves.  Thank you on behalf of the Eshienga Primary School.
