A startling difference

We visited the Ilturisho school this past spring and were able to get some video of the students there. They took me to the reservoir they used to walk to to get water for the school.  This water was used for drinking, cleaning and cooking! The next part of the video shows the students using the clean water from the pipeline. I’m sure you can appreciate the difference.  The video speaks for itself.

New well project – Ripoi Nkineji

When we first pulled up to the spring at Ripoi there was no one there. We walked around the site looking at the project.  I was astounded that this small puddle of water about the size of a couple bird baths was their only source of water. Slowly people started showing up.  A mother with her two young daughters came to scoop water out of the shallow indent in the earth.
