Kamama drinks clean water as she helps her mother, Julia Lolem, fetch water from a kiosk.  

They walk about 252 yards roundtrip from their home to the closest water point, one of 15 water kiosks in World Vision’s Mtelo water project in West Pokot, Kenya.

Because there’s clean water available close by, Kamama is seldom sick, she bathes every day, and her mother has the time and water she needs to grow fruit and vegetables. 

“Life became much easier when the water came,” says Julia. Each of the 15 water kiosks is managed by a water committee of people who live nearby. The community decided where kiosks and troughs for livestock would go.

In sub-Saharan Africa, 325 million people don’t have access to an improved water source. Many walk an average of 6k daily to collect water from polluted rivers and ponds.
