The community of Karaus, Kenya is home to around 4,000 individuals and they currently gather their water from a river, but, since the river is an open source of untreated water, many community members fall ill from water-borne diseases. Furthermore, the unsafe river water becomes scarce during drier seasons, making it even more unreliable for the community. Children often spend much of their days walking to fetch water from the river, making it difficult for them to stay in school and continue their educations.
Well Aware is projected to complete this project in 2021.
Population Impact: 4,000
