In the rural areas of Kenya running water is not the norm. In many villages there is a question asked to the government about available water sources. These sites are, however, too far away and so most people walk for three hours a day to the nearest water pipe to then have to carry the full, heavy canister back home. For the old, the sick, the children and the pregnant women this is an impossible task. The hot weather only aggravates the situation. Agricultural activities are almost impossible under these conditions.
Our goal, therefore, is to lay a water pipeline in all areas that we have schools to provide residents with access to clean drinking water. We do this by building onto the nearest watering pipes. This is at an extra cost of between 800 euros and 3,000 euros, depending on the distance.
