Julia Lolem and her daughter, Kamama, put maize in the family storehouse.

“I grow maize, beans and millet and I have fruit trees,” says Julia. “Crops were not so good this year – there was not enough rain – but I grew enough maize to store some.”

Julia’s family 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. 

Because she has plenty of water close by, Julia is able to water her fruit trees during dry times. She also plans to plant more crops, so her children can enjoy fresh, healthy greens every day, along with the delicious ugali (cornmeal mush) she serves them.
