SUSTAINABLE WATER SOLUTIONS FOR A KAMBI-MAWE VILLAGE IN WOTE, MAKUENI COUNTY
Share this entry
Hello, I am Jehoshaphat Kioko.
Kambi-Mawe is a village in Wote, Makueni County, which has periodic drastic water shortages. Its main source of water is a seasonal earth dam which dries up in the dry season. In the past the dam would sustain the water needs for the community but clearing of land (which exposes the land to severe erosion leading to siltation) for agricultural use and the growing population has put a lot of pressure on the dam and it can no longer sustain the community water needs.
This needs to be supplemented with alternatives either several water tanks placed at strategic points or to drill boreholes and piping the water to common points where locals can access.
With enough water, the community will be free of hunger, save time taken to trek long distances in search for water and reduce pressure on the earth dam.
Given support, I am confident this project will go a long way in providing water solution for the community, the County and eventually the Country.
I support the cause.

Ours is a truly growing giving as we weave the giving into the fabric of daily lives where: everywhere in the World: businesses publish adverts, logos & barcodes; consumers see the adverts, logos & barcodes and pay for or buy advertised services & products; and, consumers dispose of related waste and collect related garbage around the clock.
