Event Info


As in hundreds of thousands of villages and neighborhoods in the developing the world, the world water crisis is an everyday reality in most rural villages in western Kenya.

The typical rural villages is home to about 500 households and 2,500 people.  The water crisis is real and personal i these villages:

 
  • The burden of daily water collection falls mainly on the women and children of the village
  • Some villagers walk up to five miles a day over difficult terrain to fetch water up to three times a day
  • Most fetch water from ponds and creeks that carry many water-borne diseases

The Jubilee Village Project (JVP) is partnering villages in western Kenya to help bring safe water nearby all homes in the villages.  The goal of this system is to assist each villages in developing and managing a sustainable safe water solution to bring safe water to within 500 meters over every household in the community.

JVP is currently assessing and selecting the third village to which JVP will partner with  to help bring safe water. Walk For Water's in 2012 to 2016 raised money to install a Community Safe Water Systems in Kager village
in 2014 and Ngulu village in 2017.


The world water crisis is daunting – a seemingly overwhelming challenge. But if we all do our part and we all work together, we can bring safe water to one home, to one village, to one country and to all the world.

WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
