Just a Drop and Refinitiv Charities are bringing safe, clean water and sustainable change to communities across the Makueni and Machakos counties in Kenya.
Just a Drop have completed the installation of a sand dam in the community of Kwa Kalekye and two rainwater harvesting tanks in Malioni and Kathyaka schools.
The members of all three communities that have benefited from this grant now have access to safe, clean water all year round.
As part of this project, communities receive hygiene education and participate in soap making workshops to ensure they have the tools to stay safe from water-related diseases, and also curb the spread of COVID-19.
Through the sand dam and training from Just a Drop, communities will develop a program of sustainable agriculture which improves food security and ensures a steady supply of income for years to come.
