Kenya Partnership

The Kenya Water Project was founded in 2007 to supply safe drinking water in the Nyanza Province in Western Kenya, where one VCB member grew up. There was only one well serving the village of Wanyande and surrounding villages. Women and children commonly walked six miles to the well. The Nzoia River, once a supply of safe water, became polluted and carried waterborne diseases. Tragically, this VCB member's own brother, Nyarotho, died from typhoid fever a few years ago from using the water.

In July 2007, fundraising was well underway and a VCB short-term missions team traveled to the village to prepare for the well drilling and to scope out other project ideas. With generous donations from VCB, one well was drilled in November 2007. It is centrally located to serve the 12,000 people of the Usonga location.area.

In July 2010, another VCB short-term team traveled to the area to run a Vacation Bible School and to train teachers to get the Word of God into the hearts of hundreds of children in the area.
