Everyone Deserves Clean Water!

Water Is Life Kenya (WILK) works to bring clean water to communities in southern Kenya. Our newest project is bringing clean water to Osewan.

This month, WILK will be working on fundraising campaigns via social media and the internet to jump-start this important project. Our goal this month is to raise $40,000.

BACKGROUND: Clean water will enable people to live in Osewan safely and permanently. Currently they are crowded in nearby villages, cut off from a better life and good source of pasture for their cattle because of a lack of water. This project will involve a deep well installation which includes: drilling a well, installing a pump and a power source, building a power house and a permanent tank able to store 27,000 gallons (100,000 liters) of water, building water point, troughs and latrines. A large undertaking, indeed but one that is much needed!

With the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we know how important it is to have sufficient clean water to wash your hands. Just imagine having to walk 6 miles to the nearest water source. There is no bathroom sink with running water in Osewan!

Our goal is for the community of Osewan to have clean water to drink, to be clean, and healthy.

Please help us reach our goal and donate today!
