Faces of Water


19 years old • Kavuthu Secondary School, Kenya

Stephen loves being in school because he gets to learn about agriculture, his favorite subject, and read books. But, sometimes it is hard for him to get to school. He and his family used to move around based on their access to water. Even then, sometimes his family would get sick from the water because they did not always know if the water is clean.

When asked how the new, sustainable rainwater project at his school has affected his life, Stephen said:

“Water is an essential thing in life because without water, I find my life incomplete. [The new project] has allowed me to escape from diseases which can be caused by dirty water.“

Stephen now has the clean water he needs to learn, thrive, and work towards his goal of one day becoming a journalist.
