Walk For Water
Event Info

As in hundreds of thousands of villages and neighborhoods in the developing the world, the world water crisis is an everyday reality in the village of Ngulu in western Kenya.

In this village, the poverty statistics are not just numbers...
...they have names and faces

In this village of 500 households and 3,000 people, the crisis is real and the crisis is personal:

  • The burden of daily water collection falls on the women and children of Ngulu, including children as young as 6-7 years old
  • Some villagers walk up to five miles a day over difficult terrain to fetch water up to three times a day
  • Ponds from which villagers collect water are shared with livestock

The goal of Community Safe Water System is to assist the village of Ngulu in developing and managing a sustainable safe water solution to bring safe water to within 500 meters of every household in Ngulu.

The world water crisis is daunting – a seemingly overwhelming challenge. But if we all do our part and we all work together, we can bring safe water to one home, to one village, to one country and to all the world.
