Stories and Community Profile

A new well has been completed for the Ebuhayi Nursery School.

This community is located in the Eshisiru Central sub-location in Western Kenya, about 18km from Kakamega.

The water project located at this nursery school will serve well
over 800 people, both at the school and from the surrounding area.  A
water committee consisting of 3 men and 7 women has been formed and the
community had contributed about $300USD to acquire surveys and permits
for the new well.

The former water source was a passing stream nearly 3km away.  It was unclean and unsafe.

The project leader noted…

“The response was so encouraging, positive and the well issue seemed
to have reclaimed the lives of both the nursery school children and the
community dwellers. The community members promised to form prayer
groups to be praying for those who donated towards this well.”

Partner Profile

Bridge Water Project has been funded by The Water Project almost since they got their start in 2007.  This local Kenyan NGO works directly with the communities and neighbors they know well.  Building relationships with these villages and the local government helps ensure that the water projects we fund are sustainable in the long term.

BWP works to repair up to four wells for every new one they install.  In this area of Kenya, many old and broken down water points still exist.  We have found that restoring these water points and establishing new plans for maintenance and monitoring, is quite cost effective.

We work closely with partners like BWP to strengthen their teams, through professional development growing their impact and quality of work over time.  Your donations make it all possible.
