Kenya is a prized destination for international visitors, but it's also a chronically water-scarce country. Growing population and climate change are contributing to worsening conditions.

Measured in cubic meters per person per year, it's projected to have less than a quarter of the water its people need by 2025. So we're working with our partners to protect sources and build wells, giving people life-saving access to clean water.
