Without clean water, the people of western Kenya suffer from disease and malnutrition. Children in many schools are required to go the entire day, without evan a cup of water. To obtain water from the lakes and streams, many women and children must travel for long distances.
Rainbow Christian Missions is helping to reduce this problem by financing the digging of clean water wells near communities, schools and medical facilities.
The cost to dig and maintain a hand-dug well is around $3,500. In some areas, where a hand-dug well cannot meet the needs of the individuals, a machine-dug well must be financed. The cost for a machine-dug well is over $10,000.
As of the fall of 2012, Rainbow Christian Missions has financed the digging of 6 wells in the western area of Kenya.
