Climate change. The new reality.

Gasira is eight years old and lives in Turkana, Kenya, where devastating droughts are becoming ever more frequent.

It’s down to climate change. Rivers have dried up and there isn’t enough clean water for everyone to drink, cook, wash, or water the animals they farm to make a living.

Finding water is a daily struggle.

People walk for miles, in extreme heat, to reach the nearest water point. A journey that can take the entire day, taking all their time and all their effort.

Or like Gasira, they have to collect muddy groundwater from makeshift, unstable wells. The little water available is dirty and dangerous to drink.

Gasira’s father says:

“I know it’s bad for my family and my animals to drink dirty water because we often have stomach problems, but we have no choice.”

INGENUITY CAN HELP PEOPLE LIKE GASIRA ADAPT TO AND FLOURISH IN THE NEW REALITY

There is a solution!

People like Gasira can adapt and live with the changing climate. But it takes ingenuity, because deep underground there’s enough water for everyone.

A unique combination of solar-powered water pumps, water resource management and health training can help communities access water and use it to bring about an enormous change.

It works. It will keep working.

This ingenious combination is already changing lives elsewhere in the region. Families have water for drinking, cooking, washing, watering their animals and growing food. They can make the most of this precious resource, with the skills to maintain the pumps and knowledge of how to give everyone their fair share and enjoy the life-saving health benefits of clean, fresh water.

It’s a long-term solution for years to come.

Families can have brighter, healthier, more rewarding lives despite the changing climate.

YOU CAN HELP PEOPLE ADAPT AND FLOURISH IN THE NEW CLIMATE REALITY


Do something wonderful today and help people like Gasira change their world.

With your support, we can work with more communities to help them adapt to the changing climate and transform their lives and livelihoods. For good.
