World Water Day Projects – March 22, 2022
World Water Day is on 22 March every year. It is an annual observance, started in 1993, that celebrates water and raises awareness of the 2 billion people currently living without access to safe water.
100 Humanitarians International started water projects in Kenya in 2017, when we built three rainwater capture systems with families in rural Kenya. The idea was to create a system to capture rainwater from their iron sheet roofs.
Each system was successful, and to this day provide water for the families when it rains, as well as neighbors who are in need.
The 3 Ways We are Helping with Water
In honor of World Water Day, we decided to work on 3 different water projects that would have a big impact in the communities we serve.
1. 200 water tanks, 100 liters each, were delivered to families in Bomet by Anita Byegon.
2. A spring preservation project was started in Western Kenya that will support 300 people. Facilitated by Christine Sakali.
3. We began fundraising for a deep borehole to be drilled on the Maasai Mara, providing water for 25 villages in the surrounding area.
Clean Water is an Ongoing Challenge
The water challenges are constant, but we have a plan to create change, one person, one family, and one community at a time. You can help! Just click donate, and choose an amount that you want to donate, or become a monthly donor and make an ongoing impact.
