This project is part of Bridge Water Project’s program in Western Kenya. What follows is direct from them:

PROPOSED PROJECT.

The proposed Mwibubi church of God was started in the year 1984 with an aim of transforming people’s lives through ministry of a priest characterized by love, holiness and sub-mission to authority. The church is located in the centre of a local market where by most of the business men and women from this local market get water from the hand dug well dug by the church. The church has a nursery school within its compound. The church has a major challenge since there are children on the compound who are at the risk of falling in the well since its open. Again the church has approached BWP for their assistance so as to avoid the risk of Kids falling in the well and that to enable them to acquire water from the well without contaminating it as it happens now by the use of a rope.

 CURRENT WATER SOURCE

The members of Mwibubi church of GOD and the Market entirely rely on this existing well as their current water source.

 POPULATION

The church has 300 members, 80 nursery children and 1000-1500people from the market

HYGIENE AND SANITATION

The hygiene and sanitation status of the church is good. There is a composite pit where all collected rubbish is dumped. Toilets are also washed daily. However, there are no hand washing points outside the pit latrines.

PROJECT BENEFICIARIES

If the well is rehabilitated, the members of Mwibubi church of God and the entire market will be the beneficiaries.

 ASSESSING THE NEED

There is need to rehabilitate this project with a new stainless steel Affridev pump which will be maintained by the church management committee.

WATER COMMITTEE

The Mwibubi church of God will be in charge of the new rehabilitated water project.

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.
