THE STORY:

Tristen Wallace wrote -

Without Borders-USA (EWB-USA Rutgers) focuses on providing clean, accessible water in countries across the globe. EWB-USA Rutgers has adopted a water supply and distribution project in Kolunje, Kenya. In this community of over 7,000 people, women and children walk up to 5 miles to retrieve no more than 5 gallons of water per trip each day. Unfortunately, these water sources are often contaminated with waterborne pathogens. We are working to empower this population by collaborating with community leaders to design and implement rainwater catchment and storage systems, along with a new goal to access and distribute existing sources of groundwater. This upcoming winter, a team of students from the project will travel to Kolunje to monitor already-constructed rainwater catchment systems for two local schools in the Miranga subvillage, conduct assessments to install new systems at several other schools, and begin work on a groundwater borehole in the Lunga subvillage. We believe our efforts in the community will enable the citizens of Kolunje to spend less time retrieving water and more time leading productive, healthy lives. However, in order to implement a project of this scale, we require additional funding. Your donation will make you a valuable partner in fostering a new generation of socially responsible students while contributing to sustainable and positive impact. Please help us make this change today. If you are interested in receiving additional information about our project, please contact the EWB-USA Rutgers Kenya Project Leads, Ajay Kashi, at ajaykashi117@gmail.com and Sriram Gidugu at sriram9795@gmail.com .
