Today—World Water Day—marks about one year since we formally started our water filter projects. In March 2012, I traveled to Africa to begin implementing our Kenya Clean Water Project with our in-country partners.
In Siaya and Bondo, Kenya, gathering water is an all-day affair. Families walk to collect it from the muddy Yala River. They also have to find wood, a scarce resource. Then, they must boil the water, producing greenhouse gases and, in many cases, indoor air pollution.
Many of us take clean water for granted. But in rural Kenya, waterborne illness can be both common and life-threatening.
Our new carbon offset partnership with Triple Quest gives water filters and training in their use to families in need. By purchasing NativeEnergy carbon offsets from the Kenya Clean Water Project, you will help fund this dynamic program.
