Since 1996, CAM’s Water-for-the-World program has provided more than 120 community wells in Kenya, giving many people access to fresh, clean water. Lavon Stoltzfus, who helped coordinate some of these projects, says, “In rainy season, Kenyans sometimes just go to the nearest mud puddle to get water. This, as you can imagine, is not very healthy.”

Wells provided through Water-for-the-World in Kenya are usually dug by hand. They take an average of six weeks to dig before they are capped for sanitation and fitted with a hand pump.
