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


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.


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


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


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.


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


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


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

We're just getting started, check back soon!

Project Type

Well rehabilitation is one of the most cost effective ways to bring clean, safe water to a community.  Sometimes it involves fixing a broken hand pump, other times it means sealing a hand dug well to prevent it from being contaminated.  These repairs, and often time total replacements, coupled with sanitation and hygiene training make a huge impact in communities.
