Hot milk tea is on the breakfast menu for Kamama, a 5-year-old sponsored child in Kenya.

Kamama lives in a community served by World Vision’s Mtelo Water Project in West Pokot County, Kenya. The gravity-fed water system supplies clean water to about 800 households as well as schools, churches, and a health center.

“I like to fetch water for mom,” she says. 

She walks about 252 yards roundtrip from their home to the closest water point, one of 15 water kiosks.

Because there’s clean water available close by, Kamama is seldom sick, she bathes every day, and there’s always plenty of water on hand to make delicious milk tea. 

Yet 325 million people in sub-Saharan Africa don’t have clean, safe water close by. They walk an average of 6K daily to bring home jugs of dirty water to make their families’ tea.
