Water is Life Kenya's three Pillars. Water projects, livestock as a business and beaded handicrafts
Water is Life Kenya helps remote villages in Southern Kenya bring water close to home. We train women and men how to benefit from their skills in raising cattle. We have a beaded handicraft division that helps artisans and their families immediately and the profits go back into our water projects. We listen, we ask questions, and we act so that everybody can escape poverty.
