Kuku, Kenya – our newest water project
Kuku, Kenya, our newest water project, is so remote and hidden, that no one has ever reached out to them about helping them with their water struggles. That changed for them this year when Joyce Tannian and Water is Life Kenya came on the scene. This community of 1700 individuals (250 women, 50 men and 1400 children) struggle daily on their own to have water. Women, as you see in this video, have to dig in a dry river basin during the dry season, take 8 minutes to fill their jugs with water resulting in hours spent each and every day for what little water they can procure and carry back to their home.
Nov. 8th – 9th – First water was struck at 4 p.m Kenyan time on Thursday, November 8th. Drilling went to 175 meters and looks to be an extremely productive borehole! In fact, the water pressure was so much, it made drilling difficult.
Dec. 18th – The gushing water in Kuku during the test pumping of the new borehole! It’s the most productive borehole Water Is Life – Kenya has ever drilled – 13,000 gallons per hour…and the reason for doing all we do!
