One of the largest needs in the Pokot region of Northern Kenya is access to clean water. Pokot women and children spend hours every day carrying dirty water to their homes, while battling the diseases it carries. Along with POM, we are committed to providing access to clean water to every Pokot person because we’ve seen first hand the change it brings to a community. Through the drilling of wells, communities suddenly become filled with hope. Children are able to go to school, mothers can spend more time with their families, and men are able to plan for the future.
Out of this deep commitment, we’ve started a new organization, Hope Water Project. Hope Water Project is focused exclusively on providing access to clean water, which will ultimately reveal hope.
