Stories and Community Profile

The well at the Khasunire Community in Western Kenya is now complete.

This well is serving 570 people in the community.  The project is
overseen by a water committee of 3 men and 7 women.  Together with the
rest of the community, they raised over $300USD to secure the initial
permits and surveys needed to carry out the project.  They will oversee
it going forward, helping to ensure it’s sustainability.

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.
