Smiling Through


Kamama, age 5 and sponsored, lives in a community served by World Vision’s Mtelo Water Project in West Pokot County, Kenya.

Kamama likes to help her mother by fetching water from the closest kiosk. It takes less than 7 minutes to walk the 252 yards, fill her jerry can, and return home.

The gravity-fed water system supplies clean water to about 800 households as well as schools, churches, and a health center.

Kamama is in her second year of preschool and she loves to go to school with her best friend, who lives next door. 

Because they have clean water close at hand, Kamama bathes every day at home.

“She can go to school early and study well, wear clean clothes, and not be tired or sick,” says her mother Julia.

6K (3.5 miles) is the average distance women and children in Africa have to walk for water – water that you wouldn’t dare drink.
