Ndovoini, Kenya

Ndovoini is one of the communities that can thrive with a rehabilitated water system and the Well Aware model. The community lost their water well in 2013 and was retrieving unsafe water from a river 6 kilometers away. Despite efforts to reach the original water system implementer, the community has been ignored. Typhoid, diarrhea and dysentery were all affecting the children there, and the men in the community were struggling to support their families without water for their agriculture.

Well Aware completed the rehabilitation of the dysfunctional borehole in 2015, and returned in 2019 to add a new pump and to complete routine repairs to the structure to ensure its long-term functionality.

Population size: 2,400

Completion Date: 2015; expansion in 2019
