Nyakio, Laikipia County, Kenya

Current Community Situation: Nyakio had a water well equipped with a hand pump that continued to break and damaged the borehole. They were getting water from a seasonal river that is contaminated or another hand-dug water well that is 6 kilometers away. Their school was poorly attended, and there were very few girls in attendance.

Description: Well Aware identified a nearby source of water that could be piped to the school and distributed to the community with added infrastructure. With extra water storage, there is now enough water to supply the school and community.
