After months of consultations, discussions and (much) patience, the time has finally come. The first contract between a WaterStarters franchisee and Amref in Kenya was signed on 30 September 2022!
The first WaterStarters borehole!
Meanwhile, we started construction of the first borehole on 19 October! The water scheme will be finished in the coming few weeks. In addition, local healthcare workers will be trained on clean water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Thanks to our investors and partners, we have completed the first borehole in Kajiado County. This will help 2,800 people, 5,700 cattles, households, a health facility and a school to get fresh drinking water.
More boreholes are expected to follow soon. We have been in talks for quite some time with three communities that have already saved part of the required financial contribution. More information about these projects will follow hopefully soon.
