This well was originally drilled in 2009. Unfortunately the team
installed a sub-standard well pump that quickly rusted and fell apart.
We have taken measures to ensure this never happens again, including
finding a new source of pumps and re-training workers.  Staff changes
were also a part of this re-training.

This well serves nearly 800 people in total.  The school serves 450 students.

Here’s a link to the original project:

They report from the dedication ceremony… (unedited)

“we managed to reach Ebumamu primary school at 3.30 p.m and found the school waiting for us. We all marched towards the water system and had speeches from the headmaster, the head girl and the teacher on duty.

They all appreciated and wished that God would bless the water project abundantly so that they may reach other people in great need  of water. That marked the end of our handling over ceremony in the rehabilitated sites.”

9/21/2010 – New Pump Attached.

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.
