A Year Later: Mudete Community

December, 2018

The people we spoke with in Mudete all noted that they’ve saved time fetching water ever since their spring was protected.

A Year Later: Mudete Community

A year ago, your generous donation enabled us to protect Wadimbu Spring for Mudete Community in Kenya. The contributions of incredible monthly donors and others giving directly to The Water Promise allow our local teams to visit project sites throughout the year, strengthening relationships with communities and evaluating the water project over time. These consistent visits allow us to learn vital lessons and hear amazing stories – and we’re excited to share this one from local team member Lillian Achieng with you.

The community members in Mudete are enjoying the ever flowing water from their spring.

“We save a lot of time when we come to fetch water since we don’t have to wait to access water like we used to,” said Catherine Egehiza, adding that it fetching water is so easy the children can now help their parents.

The community members believe in themselves more than ever before, knowing that they can handle any project that comes their way. They now believe that they can do even more with what they have.

Protection of the spring is only one step along the journey toward sustainable access to clean water. The Water Project is committed to consistent monitoring of each water source. Our monitoring and evaluation program, made possible by donors like you, allows us to maintain our relationships with communities by visiting up to 4 times each year to ensure that the water points are safe and reliable.

This is just one of the many ways that we monitor projects and communicate with you. Additionally, you can always check the functionality status and our project map to see how all of our water points are performing, based on our consistent monitoring data.

One project is just a drop in the bucket towards ending the global water crisis, but the ripple effects of this project are truly astounding. This project in Mudete is changing many lives.

“Fetching water after school hours for domestic use is now possible because we do not have to wait to get the water which means we can get it done before the sun goes down,” said Beverlyne Akadanya, a 15-year-old girl.

This is only possible because of the web of support and trust built between The Water Project, our local teams, the community, and you. We are excited to stay in touch with this community and support their journey with safe water.
