IW Club Mombasa, Kenya have taken the task of providing boreholes in rural areas around Mombasa. Water sources are scarce and women and girls have to walk far to fetch water for daily consumption. Sometimes girls are kept away from school. They have completed one borehole in a school campus, which also has an orphanage. It was on condition that the school would allow access to the community around.
On Sunday, March 4th 2018 IW Club Mombasa commissioned another borehole in a community where people had to go almost a kilometer away to fetch water and now it will be within 5 minutes walking distance. This is within an area that has about 500 local houses around.
The well was opened with song and dance by members of IW Club Mombasa and community people gathered to welcome them. They also distributed juice and biscuits to the children and a packet of maize meal to the men and women present.
They have received donation for one more well and a pledge for another. Is there better way to leave a lasting Legacy?
