Drink Deep

Description

Winfred Ndinda, 22, gives baby Damian a drink of fresh water from their community well in Kenya.

A borehole well has made a big difference to families in Winfred’s village.

Because the new water source is so close, children and parents are able to spend much more time studying and contributing to their families' livelihoods.

"This water is sweet and nice," Vahati says. The dirty water they had before made her sick, she says.

Because irrigation is easier now, the community formed a farming cooperative, where they cultivate tomatoes and other cash crops for consumption and for sale at market.

World Vision worked with the local government to finish drilling the borehole in 2012. The organization has since installed a solar-powered pump, five water kiosks, 3.2 kilometers of pipeline.
