This project is in the early stages of site selection and initial construction preparation.

During this phase, teams are working to ensure that the community is mobilized and ready for the work to commence. They may be working with them to gather supplies, prepare the site or organize a local water committee to oversee the project in the long term.

We will post specific details about the project, including locations, as they are made available by our partners.

Pending Well Repair Kenya

Project Type: Well Rehab
Project type subject to change prior to completion based on community needs and geographical and hydro-geological limitations.

Wells break... more often than anyone really likes to admit. 

When they do, communities often end up worse than when they started.  So, The Water Project is committed to making sure our projects keep working for a very long time. 

When donors like you are generous enough to allocate your gifts "where needed", we'll use some of those funds to rehabilitate broken wells, improve the current source of water, and/or re-drill to improve the capacity of a well.  It's such a vital role to play!

These projects cost far less than a brand new well so your gift actually goes much farther.  And as we repair broken wells, we also work hard to find out what went wrong so that our partners can continually improve how we provide access to clean, safe water.

Your gift is being put to use right now and we'll show you where sometime before the date listed below.

This page is a "holding place"  Your specific gift will be updated as soon as a repair is complete.  You'll see the exact well your donation helped repair or replace.  So...stay tuned.

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.
