• World Water Day 2022 - Grain of Rice Academy Water Project


As we celebrate all the good work that has happened and the lives that have been forever changed by access to safe, clean water, we know this work is far from over.

This World Water Day, we want to invite you to be a part of a special opportunity to dig deep and change the world for the students at Grain of Rice Academy in Nanyuki, Kenya.

Our goal is to raise $56k to see a long-lasting clean water solution become a reality and your support can make that possible today!

We have a group of dedicated individuals who have pledged $28k towards our $56k goal, which means we need to raise $28k to see this project fully funded allowing us to break ground and start drilling!

Why is Clean Water Access Important?
Because They Are!

The Problem

This growing primary school opened in mid-2021 and is located in a rural community in the shadow of Mt. Kenya. The local water source is a river bed found at the bottom of a steep canyon that is home to poisonous snakes. With only a few rains, drought is prevalent. There are a few shallow wells in the community but during the dry season, they often run out of water, not to mention many are salty. This is why they need a deep-water well drilled.

All of this local water is contaminated and full of water-borne disease. Students and teachers all deal with the daily impact of sickness and disease that prevents teachers from teaching and children from attending school and learning.

We know you believe students and teachers matter and should have access to safe, clean water.

The Solution

Your support will provide a long-lasting solution that will bring good health, tangible hope, and needed resources for a sustainable future!

Deep Water Drilling Rig

Deep-Water Drilled Well

Drilling 250 meters down to two overlapping aquifers provides clean, safe water for all the students and staff of the school for the foreseeable future!

Solar Power

Solar Power Pumping System

Harnessing free power from the sun, water will be pumped throughout the year, saving thousands of dollars in electrical bills and there will be no power outages!

Water Filtration System

Clean Water Filtration System

A robust and complete water filtration system that ensures all water coming from the borehole will be safe and clean, reducing water-borne illness and days of school missed!
