Faces of Water


12 years old • Kaliini, Kenya

Joy is a student in Kaliini, Kenya who loves science and has dreamt of becoming a surgeon her whole life. Before she had access to clean water, she constantly worried about being able to receive an education considering she and her family had to move frequently based on access to water. Even when they weren’t moving, she and her brother collected water twice a day and often missed school because of it.

When Kaliini received a new water system, Joy’s life was changed forever. With access to clean water, Joy can fully focus on her goal of becoming a surgeon and her family can plant their roots in the community!

“Water is life.”
