$2250 Raised of $2,250 Goal
Water Harvesting at Itugururu Tumaini Family Center
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
This project helped to provide clean drinking water for the 45 children at the Center. In addition, the surplus water was also used for all the household chores. Furthermore, the project also largely helped in successfully setting up a kitchen garden for vegetables. This in turn helped to improve the children’s nutrition.
Number of Children Impacted:
Our partnership with Kitechild and their role in helping us start the Shamba (Kenyan for farm) and dairy farm has eliminated expenditure for vegetables and milk improving the children's nutrition and health greatly. The water borehole, the vegetables and the milk has also brought the community closer to us, as they come to get water and buy milk and vegtables. We are now coexisting well.
Wasilwa Lusweti, Watoto Wema Director
Kitechild doesn't give us handouts or tokens, they give us VALUE. They provided us with the seeds and funding to build two greenhouses and today we have greenhouses full of green tomatoes and are expanding the farm to grow onions and potatoes outside in the open air. This is never heard of before in Masai land, growing one's own food, but with their help we did it.
