Sweetwaters Girls School, Kenya
The community of Sweetwaters in Kenya is located near and supported by the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. This secondary school supports about 350 female students. The school currently retrieves their water from rainwater collection, while the surrounding community members get their water from a shallow, low-yielding borehole.
Based on hydrogeological surveys and reports on nearby boreholes, Well Aware believes a new borehole in Sweetwaters will be high-yielding enough to not only provide water to the school, but to the surrounding community, as well.
Well Aware plans to drill a new deep borehole well with a solar submersible pump in March 2020.
Population Impacted: 350 with the opportunity to allow access to the community depending on final yield.
Date: Breaking ground in March 2020
