Proposed Project

Every good thing made possible by access to safe water depends on it being available every day - year after year.

This project in Kenya is part of The Water Promise campaign - and includes project implementation, monitoring technology, training maintenance teams, and setting aside five years of repair funding to ensure reliable, ongoing safe water.

The project will begin with effective community selection and engagement. Safe water will be provided through a complete rehabilitation of a nonfunctional water source or drilling a new well in a community. Communities participate in comprehensive sanitation and hygiene training, and community led water committees are built and/or strengthened. Additionally, monitoring is put in place to ensure that water continues to flow for years to come.

As an investor in this program, you will receive reporting updates with photos, stories, and the GPS coordinates of your project so you can see the faces and read the stories of the people whose lives you've helped transform.

But it won't end there.

Once installed, beginning in Q1 2016, we’ll upload monitoring data from sensors to show daily functionality of the project, and you’ll see when our teams make repairs.

We all need to know if water is still flowing in a month, a year, the year after that, etc. Water service is what matters most for those we serve.

We're all in this together - you, The Water Project, our partners, and the communities we serve together.

Wells for Kenya


Project Type: Borehole Well and Hand Pump with Remote Sensor
Project type subject to change prior to completion based on community needs and geographical and hydro-geological limitations.

Clean water changes lives. Girls return to school. Women begin small businesses. Men are no longer too sick to work. Fields are watered and food supply becomes more reliable. Health returns and children grow up to be productive members of their community. The cycle of poverty is broken. Lives change.

"When water comes...everything changes." That's what our driver told us as we drove from town to town in Kenya. And we see the change every time a new well brings clean water.


We're just getting started, check back soon!
