Well Rehabilitation in Kenya



Well Rehabilitation in Kenya - Beta Charitable Trust
Beta Charitable Trust sponsored rehabilitation (cupping) of 20 wells in Wajir County, Kenya. 

This county has suffered repeated droughts and famine which, together with extreme poverty, has led to chronic food insecurity among its people. BCT wells projects intend to improve water supply and encourage farming thus reducing food insecurity in this region. 

Many people have dug shallow wells themselves. However, they lack resources to ‘cup’ it. Thanks to BCT donors, the beneficiaries will now be able to draw water from their wells safely without fearing; neither children and animals falling into it nor of dirt filling it.

The stories of the beneficiaries of the twenty wells are below:
