Finish Well: Providing water to communities in Southern Kenya
In 2011, Bay Leaf Baptist Church began considering ways to encourage and support our longtime Kenyan partners in their efforts to provide water in their communities. After initial land surveys, water table evaluations were completed, and exploratory drills for water came up dry, efforts were refocused to provide water through alternate means.
To date, the team has sought to implement a system of rain water collection and storage below ground and also damming for livestock. Work remains in order to Finish Well the task of equipping our friends to harvest the resources in their area while also navigating the tough challenges of the environment.
