Challenge

In rural western Kenya water, food, and energy insecurity resulting from climate change profoundly impacts the lives of women as well as youth. Increasingly unreliable weather patterns and few water resources have restricted agricultural activities to the short, three-month rainy season. Rural people have suffered from waterborne diseases and economically self-sufficient without reliable access to clean and abundant water. Many families cannot afford fresh vegetables as well.

Solution

By providing access to abundant and free water pumped by solar-powered wells, YIDP can help rural Kenyan communities become agriculturally and economically self-sufficient. YIDP field technicians will rehabilitate existing wells and install water basins and elevated reservoirs so that young people in the communities' garden cooperatives can easily irrigate their vegetables and fruit and nut trees year-round. Women and girls will no longer need to walk long distances to collect water.

Long-Term Impact

In rural Kenya, water is everything. Year-round access to abundant and clean water will help YIDP's 5000 beneficiaries in rural Western Kenya tend cooperative gardens and transform their lives. Through community gardens, residents will have sustainable access to clean water, nutritious foods and will gain a reliable source of household income. YIDP works with village populations to meet felt needs through a culturally respectful, participatory, and grassroots development process.
