Kuku Community Borehole Project

Our current water project is located in Kuku, Kenya. In addition to walking hours daily for water, women dig in a dry river bed daily to access the water table. It takes 8 minutes to fill a 5-gallon jerry can. In a community with hundreds of women, and each woman needing several cans of water to take care of her family, the water line is long, and women are often forced to come at night in a group, with warriors to protect them from wild animals, like elephants, hyenas, and lions that gather at night to drink. Initial meetings have taken place with the community and we are in the initial steps of getting the borehole dug.

What We Do

Water is Life Kenya (WILK) is a non-profit organization that has been bringing clean, accessible water to communities in Southern Kenya since 2007. We work mainly in drought-prone areas, populated by rural Maasai people who rely on cattle as their main source of income. Our dream is to help them create solutions to access and manage available water and then use water to escape poverty.

Our work is guided by 4 key values:

  • Love your neighbor as yourself
  • Don’t do for others what they can do for themselves
  • Involve the community at every phase of the project
  • Real lasting change will occur when people recognize the reality around them and their ability, with others, to change it.
