Since 2005, THE SAMBURU PROJECT has been providing    easy access to clean, safe drinking water as a foundation  for development to communities in Samburu, Kenya.

The People

A nomadic, pastoral community, the Samburu women and girls walk up to 12 miles or 6 hours every day in search of water.

Why Water?

Walking for water keeps women and girls uneducated and in a perpetual state of poverty and because water borne illnesss is the number one killer in Samburu.

Our Impact

We've drilled 84 wells, bringing water to over 80,000 people.  In our well communities education for girls has tripled and diarrhea is almost a thing of the past.
