Introducing UMR's Phase 2 of the Adopt a Village Program

Transforming Lives in Wajir County, Kenya

At UMR, we believe that access to clean water and improved hygiene can change lives. We’re thrilled to announce the launch of Phase 2 of our Adopt a Village Program in Wajir County, Kenya. Our mission is to enhance health outcomes and living conditions for the resilient communities of this region, and you can be a part of this transformative journey.

Empowering Communities: Knowledge is Key

Infrastructure alone isn’t enough. UMR believes in the power of education and community empowerment. That’s why, after completing the water network, we will provide comprehensive training on Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH). We’ll focus on personal and household hygiene, spreading essential knowledge far and wide.

Spreading the Message: From Households to Schools

We’re not stopping at households. Our mission extends to schools as well. UMR is launching school-based WASH programs, targeting children as champions of change. We’ll teach them about latrine cleaning, maintenance, handwashing techniques, and environmental sanitation. Knowledge is the key to a healthier future.

Join Us in Making a Difference

Clean water and sanitation are not just goals; they’re the building blocks of a better tomorrow. UMR’s LifeStream Initiative is aligned with the United Nations’ sustainable development goals and Kenya’s Vision 2030. Together, we can transform lives, especially for women and girls who shoulder the burden of water scarcity.

Let’s end the struggle for water, support education, and create a brighter future for Wajir County. Join us in the LifeStream Initiative, and be a part of this life-changing journey.

Together, we can turn the tide for Wajir County, Kenya.
