When you support access to clean water for all, you invest in the education of young leaders. 🎓 With clean water, school attendance increases as kids spend less time carrying water & more time focusing on their studies. 📚 Clean water access is critical for education equality. 📷: Lindsey Reed

This week, our amazing community team is out in the field at Ol Pejeta Conservancy visiting a few of our partner communities. Their days are spent: ☑️Conducting WASH training ☑️ Building relationships with local leaders ☑️ Listening to their needs ☑️ Engaging with their challenges ☑️ Ensuring that each community is empowered to take ownership of their clean water system We can't wait to see what these communities will achieve with lasting clean water. 💧🙌🏾

The burden of water collection disproportionately affects rural women - causing them to experience higher levels of poverty and fewer economic opportunities than their rural male counterparts. But, when you invest in equitable clean water access, you change the possibilities for rural women and enable them to pursue entrepreneurial activities -- like farming. Empower a rural woman today by giving lasting clean water. #DayOfRuralWomen 📷: Lindsey Re

"My fear is to meet a boy who will tell me to stop reading... I want to read more books, become a nurse, treat people, and prove my talent." - Elizabeth (13) Elizabeth is a go-getter who will not let life (or anyone) push her down. She is determined to make her dreams come true, and because of you, Elizabeth has the clean water she needs to do just that. 💙 "Water to me is just like life." Because of you, Elizabeth no longer has to collect water for her family. She has more time to read, play, and work on becoming the doctor she hopes to be. 👏 Thank you for empowering strong young women like Elizabeth to reach their goals and influence their worlds for the better. #DayOfTheGirl 📷: Karen Kavete .

The moment when clean water begins to flow for the first time... ✨It's pure joy.✨ This week, our technical team finished equipping the water project at Cheptoroi Primary School, where we drilled our highest-yielding well in June. 💧💙 The well is now complete and ready to serve the 700 students at this school, as well as thousands more at the nearby secondary school and broader community. From this moment on, their futures are going to look very, very different. No more waterborne illness; no more time wasted walking to the river for dirty water. These students can focus on their dreams -- or simply being kids. 👏🎉 🎥: Karen Kavete

“I am happy, excited, anxious and expecting. I usually carry water from the Ndaguru River on my back in 4 twenty-liter jerrycans. The water is not clean or safe for human consumption, but due to the need, I consume it as is… When there’s no water, I cannot cook. The house remains dirty. But, the children need water, the livestock needs water. With this new clean water source, it’s near my home, so I won’t strain to get clean water for my household.” - Zeddy, mother of three in Cheptoroi, Kenya Because of you, Zeddy won’t have to spend hours walking for unsafe water. She and her family will have the clean water they need to not only survive, but to thrive. . . . 📷: Lindsey Reed
