Stories and Community Profile

This project was one of four wells built in the Kendu Bay area of Kenya.  Local community leaders have since contacted us to express their deep gratitude for these new wells.

At some of the sites, it had been common in the past for people to fight over access to even dirty water.  Today, that no longer seems to be an issue.

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.
