Water is Life Kenya helps remote villages in Southern Kenya bring water close to home.  We train women and men to benefit more from their skills in raising cattle. We listen, we ask questions, and we act all so that everybody can escape poverty.

Water Walk 2016 Update

Recently, we had our water walk at the Newark Reservoir to raise $20,500 for Lenkiloriti’s water pump and generator. The 650′ borehole is dug and they have built the pump house and are just waiting for the installation of these two key pieces of equipment.
Thanks to the generous giving of others like you we are almost there.  Take a moment and check out our video if you were not able to attend as we walked for water, with water in water and had a blast!    Don’t worry, there is still time to donate so check out our Water Walk page.
