Stories and Community Profile

The community leaders in Kendu Bay
report that clean, safe and good tasting water is now flowing to
somewhere close to 1,840 people.

The people their have been celebrating these wells and are extremely happy to have access to clean water!

At long last, pictures are trickling in from the Kendu Bay wells.  The first to make it are from the Kimira Well site.

Here you can see a bit of the drilling and casing process.  You can
also meet just a few of the students from the Primary School who were
watching as the bore hole was being dug.

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.
