To launch the WaterStarters foundation, two pilot projects have been provisioned in Kajiado County in Kenya.

The work is due to take place in Summer/Autumn 2019. As well as kick starting our mission to bring clean, safe drinking water to rural Kenyan communities, these projects will provide recommendations for improvements and upscaling.
