Water Is Life
The first step out of poverty often begins with removing the barrier of access to clean, safe water. 95% of Path From Poverty Women’s Groups set their first group project goal of each woman receiving a 10,000L water tank to collect rainwater from their roof. Relieving the task of searching for clean water, women’s capacities to earn more money, send their children to school, and care for a healthier family grows exponentially.
Since 2000, Path From Poverty has worked in partnership with our Kenyan Women's Groups to provide 10,000-liter water tanks to over 1,850 homes in the Ukambani region of Kenya. Clean water and energy are shared within communities, meaning that over the years our work has impacted the lives of over 22,000 Kenyans. Access to clean water is truly the first step to new life on the path from poverty.
