The Kiambu area lies just north of Nairobi and hosts a population of over 140,000 people. This dry and arid area experiences unpredictable rainy seasons leaving the residents will little options for water. A solar powered, deep-bore well would transform this community.
Project Cost: $27,000
Impact: 10,000+ people
A solar powered deep-bore well pulls fresh, safe, consistent water from the ground.
A reliable water source means residents can spend more time developing agriculture, building a business and taking care of their families.
Studies have shown that in communities with reliable water sources, school attendance and overall student performance increases.
These wells eliminate the need for residents to get water from dangerous sources that can lead to typhoid, cholera and other life threatening diseases.
