Tea Time


Julia Lolem prepares hot milk tea to serve with chapatis for her children’s breakfast.

Julia 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.

“Life became much easier when the water came,” says Julia.

Julia used to walk hours a day to bring home river water for her family. Now that she has clean water close by, she has more time to grow vegetables and to care for her children. And with clean water always on hand, the children are seldom sick. 

Yet 325 million people in sub-Saharan Africa don’t have clean, safe water nearby. They walk an average of 6K daily to bring home jugs of dirty water to make their families’ tea.
