Clean Water Project

Approximately 60% of the Pokot tribe in Baringo County lacks access to safe drinking water. The Pokot tribe is frequently affected by droughts, which worsen the water crisis and negatively impact their livelihoods.

Addressing Water Scarcity

The Pokot tribe in Baringo County faces significant challenges in accessing safe drinking water, with approximately 60% of the population lacking reliable access. Frequent droughts exacerbate this crisis, impacting the tribe’s livelihoods and highlighting the urgent need for interventions to improve water availability and resilience. This situation underscores the importance of Living Water through the Gospel, church, and community, as well as Physical Water for drinking, irrigation, farming, and self-sustaining Christian living.

Our partnerships have enabled us to offer a new, cost-effective solution for providing clean water to multiple villages. By utilizing water harvesting through ditches and advanced filtration systems with dialysis technology, we can address the tribe’s need for drinking water, irrigation, and farming. This approach not only provides a long-term solution to water scarcity but also empowers villagers through training and education on water harvesting and filter usage. By partnering with us, you can help transform the lives of the Pokot people, through the Word of God, supporting their health, well-being, and resilience in the face of environmental challenges.

“They will neither hunger nor thirst nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on them. He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water.” Isaiah 49:10

Water Filters

Kingdom Builders International Ministries is providing water filters in partnership with Uzima to the communities that are medical grade that filter out all disease-causing contaminants.

In Baringo County, the primary source of their water is dams, water pans, and streams that are shared with livestock that causes illness. These systems filter out all disease-causing organisms, such as cholera, typhoid, dysentery, parasites, and viruses.

It is KBIM’s intent to provide a filtration system for every family in need in the communities we are working with. For $40, you can provide a family with a filter that will last up to 10 years, enabling them to stay healthy.

Water Harvesting

KBIM has partnered with CIM to train communities on water harvesting, excavating water pans, and irrigation to help provide a more reliable water source because women and children walk long distances to collect water daily.

Chemwatit, Adomeyon, and Paka have already dug their water pans, and our plan is to turn this into a reliable water source and food source through irrigation and farming. We will begin this project with other communities soon.

Irrigation and Farming

Chemwatit, Adomeyon, Paka, and Silale have moved forward with vegetable gardens now that the water pans have collected water. They have been trained on how to plant and maintain these gardens as a beginning to self-sustaining Christian living.

Wells

KBIM’s future plan is to put borehole wells around the county.
