Faces of Water


45 years old • Cheptoroi, Kenya

Peter works as a school guard for the Cheptoroi Primary School in Nakuru County, Kenya, helping to protect and serve over 600 students. He is a father of five, whose biggest concern is drought because of the water scarcity it brings.

His greatest goal is to see his kids finish school. Previously, his wife collected water from a river that is dirty and dried up seasonally, leaving them without a reliable water source. Peter’s kids often fell sick from the water collected.

Now, thanks to your support, Peter and his family won’t have to worry about where to collect water. Their community has a new, sustainable well, and they won’t have to rely on unsafe sources.

“I feel like a human being now. I have water, which is a basic human right.”
