Access to clean water changes lives.
Without clean water, families and communities will continue to struggle in poverty. Available clean water brings better hygiene and sanitation. As a result, all people can flourish and children who are in better health will be more likely to attend school.
A reliable source of clean water can also allow for the planning of agricultural initiatives and can sustain livestock. This will result in food being more available for poor families.

At ImpactHope, we believe that sustainability is critical for any effort overseas. It is vital to assist organizations and projects that are effective to find the means to become sustainable and less dependent on foreign funding. We are working together with Vision Ministries Kenya (VMK) which oversees efforts in 40 smaller communities. This well will provide greater means for VMK to be more effective in what they do!
In the fall of 2021, the first borehole has been drilled at the Olkesumet Prayer Response Center. Individuals go simply to pray – it is not uncommon to attend all-night prayer meetings on the hill. Plans are in place for mid-scale agriculture projects that will allow the Kenyans to increase the level of sustainability. What is needed is simply a well to provide them this opportunity.
We are also planning to drill a second borehole at the Olgulului Church in the Maasai region of Kenya.
