To drill one well with a distribution system
- Our Work
The Clean Water Program is committed to bringing clean water to communities across Central Western Kenya, Bolivia, Sudan, South Sudan, and Afghanistan through the drilling and equipping of water wells. In Kenya, as in much of Africa and other continents, the lack of safe drinking water causes many severe problems including dehydration, starvation, and disease. The daily chore of fetching water is no small task in rural Kenya, and people often walk as far as ten miles to collect what water they can carry from polluted streams, rivers, or dirty hand-dug wells full of parasites and bacteria. These primitive wells are also structurally dangerous.
A Better World is focused on developing long term partnerships with local community leaders and community-based organizations who are committed to long-term sustainable development of their communities. Local community members invest in projects through provision of skilled and unskilled labor, local fundraising, and securing government support/funding in order to ensure that the community is directly invested in all project activities.
