The Point of Grace Academy
children & women in Kenya, Africa
do not have access
to clean, safe, drinking water.
We're trying to change that.
The Point of Grace Academy resides in rural Kisumu along the shores of Lake Victoria. This region is known for having some of the highest levels of HIV/AIDS in all of Kenya.
While the school sits on the shores of Lake Victoria, the world’s second-largest freshwater lake, clean, safe water is in scarce supply. Raw sewage, heavy farm runoff, toxic chemicals, and algae blooms have rendered the water unsafe.
Consequently, the population, especially school children, have suffered from numerous diseases and death caused by unsafe water: typhoid, cholera, dysentery, diarrhea, worm diseases, and skin and eye infections. It can also be dangerous as crocodiles are known to wait for unsuspecting early-morning gatherers.
Thanks to cW4k, help is on the way! We’re committed to funding the delivery and installation of a sustainable state-of-the-art water purification system called the WaterPOD®. This device delivers over 10,000 gallons of clean water per day for cooking and drinking.
Impact: Clean, sustainable, safe drinking water for approximately 800 students and two neighboring villages- 2,500 people.
