Green Thumbs


Kamama (in purple shirt), and other students at Sengelel Primary School in Kenya, learn science principles as well as how to grow healthy foods by working in a school garden.

When school is in session, students care for the garden and water it twice a day, “early and late,” says teacher Korio John (red jacket). 

“We grow tomatoes, sukuma wiki (collards), and other greens, including wild greens that our grandparents used to eat,” he says “We couldn’t do this if we didn’t have the water system.” 

Sengelel Primary School in West Pokot County, Kenya, benefits from the Mtelo water system provided by World Vision. World Vision built latrines and organized WASH clubs for the students to learn about sanitation and hygiene.

Enrollment increased from 200 students to 500 since the water system was completed in 2015. Korio John says, “It’s made a huge difference.”

World Vision’s Mtelo Water Project is a gravity-fed system that supplies clean water to about 800 households as well as schools, churches, and a health center.
