Most women in the rural areas have to walk for a long distance to fetch water which is a necessity and whose process of carrying becomes detrimental to their health, which is what has fueled the MYWO Water Tank Project.
Maendeleo Ya Wanawake Organization has delivered 15 water tanks of ten thousand liters capacity that are supposed to ensure women have tap water within their compounds taking them from one rainy season to the other.
“Water is life. We do not want our mothers walking long distances in search of water. The journey begins from Kajiado and it is our intention to ensure that no woman who is a member of MYWO has to tarmac to get water,” Mrs. Rahab Muiu, the National Chairperson at the Water Tank launch in Kajiado County.
“There is joy in doing right, doing mother nature justice ensures a safe and secure environment,” Beth Syengo, the Deputy National Treasurer said during the Maendeleo Ya Wanawake Organization Water Tank project in Kajiado County.
