Proposed Project

Rainwater Catchment

Rainwater is collected off strategic areas of a roof, enters a custom guttering system (which filters out debris) and leads to a storage tank. Tanks can vary in sizes and are determined by population and average rainfall patterns. Water can be stored for months, is easily treated in the tank, and is accessible through taps. These projects are implemented at schools with proper roof lines and gutter systems to make them successful.

IcFEM Water Projects


Project Type: Rainwater Catchment
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 water project brings clean water.


We're just getting started, check back soon!
