Recently, with the outbreak of COVID-19 that mainly needs practice of good hygiene, Life From Water’s role in fighting this pandemic does not stop at delivering clean water only, yet it goes further to raise people’s awareness when it comes to sterilization and the importance of a good hygiene in order to reduce their risk of infection.
Life From Water had 2 Water Tap Connections projects where clean water was delivered inside 100 homes , we have used this opportunity to raise awareness of household by telling them the most important information they need to know to keep themselves and their families safe from COVID-19.
Also we used the opportunity that our Water Treatment Units are places where people visit frequently and printed brochures that shows the best practices of hands washing and basic information provided by WHO that everyone have to know for self-protection.
Agriculture -which is the second milestone of our project “Water Entrepreneurs“- is now live.
In our last trip to Kenya in Jan 2020 we have managed to implement and irrigation system that helped locals to start working on farming.
First milestone was water supply, by implementing a sustainable water source for the village.
This water source is the main source of water used is drinking and daily life usage, also used in agriculture.
So we have implemented a Water Dam which is an artificial lake designed to collect rain water with a Water Treatment Unit working on it using solar energy.
Also we have made a progress in milestone three which is capacity building, by working with locals to develop their basic skills and teach them about successful business models, community companies, manage water source and marketing.
Buy Me Filter is an initiative by Life From Water where you can buy a water filter and it will be delivered to a family that doesn’t have access to clean water.
Water filter is considered an easy and cheep way to solve contaminated water problem around the world.
Every water filter can provide a whole family -and maybe neighbors- with access to clean water for more than 3 years.
Life from water has distributed 500 water filter in different areas in Kenya, granting clean water to more than 3,000 beneficiaries.
