Review for The Samburu Project Inc, Santa Monica, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Access to clean water can be easily taken for granted. Over four years ago Kristen Kosinski set out on a journey and traveled through Samburu for 3 months by herself. She discovered one common thread among all of the tribes. NO WATER! Women and girls spent days walking endless miles in search of water. She came back to the states on a mission to bring water to the thousands of people in desperate need. Samburu Project has changed the landscape of women's health, prosperity, education and commerce by drilling 25 Wells in the last 3 years - bringing water to 50,000 people! She has made it part of the Samburu Project mission to create programs around women's empowerment in the local communities. One person CAN make difference. Kristen is an inspiration to so many and I know the people of Samburu are thankful for her dedication and compassion.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have had the opportunity to speak with the representatives from Kenya and I can say first hand that by providing the foundation of water, development is possible. With water as a baseline, Samburu Project has positively impacted community life including education, healthcare, income generation and women’s empowerment. Currently, most Samburu women spend the majority of each day searching for water and the water they find is often contaminated.
