This past November, our team was in Kenya conducting site visits and implementing two new drills. Thanks to the support of our partner, Moolah Marketing, and our 2018 Shower Strikers, we had the honor of working with the community of Salaita, to bring sustainable clean water to more than 1,500 people that live there (including 200 primary school students).
Salaita was previously using an unreliable, dysfunctional borehole. When it failed them, they had to walk long and far just to retrieve a single jerry-can of water for their family. Young girls and women spent their days awaiting the opportunity to retrieve water. This resulted in their inability to engage in any economic activity because of the time spent retrieving water and then preparing meals for their families.
