A new well will be installed on the grounds of the Eshiyanza Primary School.

The need for clean and safe water here is obvious.  Currently, students collect of water from and unprotected and seasonal spring over 1Km away.  The source is muddy and unsafe.
Collecting the water is a time consuming task taking more than an hour away from each school day.

The school serves 430 students, 150 parents and approximately 500-600 people in community.

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.
