Meeting Evidence Action

Connecting with a community at their water point

Story by Janji 05 de octubre de 2016

Driving through the Rift Valley we cut off the main road through Eldoret, where we became surrounded by beautiful lush farm land and tall forests. We drove through the narrow red muddy trails until we were met by a small smiling community including Alice and Priscilla, who were the local representatives for Evidence Action. We donate 10% of all sales of our Kenya Line to clean water projects in Kenya through Evidence Action.

After introducing everyone, Alice helped explain the process that Evidence Action uses to ensure that the drinking water is safe for the community.

We went through the process ourselves, the methodical cleansing of the water, ensuring that it was safe for everyone to drink. We wanted to understand exactly what our efforts were going towards. This process is currently helping 4.6 million people in rural eastern Africa.

Water is our life-fuel. Without it we're nothing. Access to clean water is everything. It means more time for love and growth. More time to live happy lives. That's something we can run for.
