Stories and Community Profile

Update: April 4-26-2010  Our partner revisited this site and reports the well is in excellent condition.  New pictures are posted below.

A new well is now complete at the Kimangeti Secondary School.

This community is located in the Kabras West Location in Western Kenya, about 34km from Kakamega.

The water project at this very large schoolserves about 1,520 students and a total of 1,800 people in the surrounding area.

A water committee consisting of 9 men and 3 women has been formed and the community has contributed about $300USD to acquire surveys and permits for the new well.

Theformer water source was an unprotected and collapsing hand dug well that was inadequate and of poor water quality due to its age.

01/17/2011: Kimangeti School Revisited

Our team recently conducted an updated hygiene and sanitation training session at the Kimangeti School.  They inspected the well, which was in generally good condition, but they still determined the rods should be upgraded to ensure they last as long as possible.  Well repairs have been scheduled.

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.
