We've touched lives across 12 communities so far, but we need your help to continue building kiosks in more schools like these!
Many thanks to JHH, Jewish Helping Hands, for granting us the Tikkun Olam grant to set up another Water Kiosk at School in the outskirts of Oyugis. This water kiosk will benefit students and neighboring community members. It will not only provide clean tap water and improved sanitation and health benefits, but there is a social business model aspect to it that develops communities’ solidarity, local education and entrepreneurial spirit among the youth.

Thanks to the deeply rooted spirit of Umuganda (coming together in common purpose to achieve an outcome), we have observed incredibly motivating community participation in Rwanda. The young and old have come together to help dig trenches where the pipes shall be laid down and built a strong standing structure. The community is thankful that this project will serve all of them and is motivated to help wherever they can. We believe we are truly leaving footprints of change and transformation in people’s lives!
Munini Primary School
Many thanks to our partners, especially the Join the Pipe, the Spindle, and United Nations of South-South Cooperation. The Kiosk was officially open on 30 January 2019.
Rubugurizo was selected to be the first beneficiary school in Rwanda to pilot A Water Kiosk at School. The main objective was to provide clean tap water and other benefits to 902 students, 14 teachers at the school and people residing around the school in the Shyogwe sector, Muhanga District, Southern Province of Rwanda.

Thank you to the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in Nairobi for co-financing another water kiosk. Agawo Primary School was able to establish a kiosk through the Slovak Aid’s grant. By the end of 2017, the school officially has access to clean drinking water serving the school students and people residing in the community around the school. The school is able to sustain income for the future from the kiosk as well!
Agawo Primary School
One of our founding partners, JTP, raised funds to set up a kiosk that now helps the school maintain its goal of achieving quality education while providing sanitary facilities. Before the kiosk, the students also had to travel about 3 kilometers from the school to fetch water, thus causing high rates of absenteeism which affected their learning sessions. Prior to the kiosk, students and community members often suffered from waterborne diseases from unsafe sources.
Cheptais SAD Primary School
Outering High School students will no longer have to walk long distances to fetch water and carry heavy loads of water back home. Kariobangi residents will also have access to constant clean water at an affordable price in their community as the kiosk at Outering High School helps to alleviate the community’s water shortage.

Thank you to the Join the Pipe and ITF volunteers, who helped set up a water kiosk at Brighter Kenya. The project has created an opportunity for children from poor families to be healthy, as they no longer consume untreated and unsafe water. The area previously experienced high mortality rate from common waterborne illnesses. With this water kiosk, we are helping Brighter Kenya School carry out programs that are intended to improve the living standards and the security of Soweto slums, thus helping the children and their families to break out from brutal poverty.

We are thrilled that with the help of Join the Pipe, we have raised enough money to work with the Daho self-help group in Siaya county to continue improving the living standard of their members and community residents. The group will now be able to grow from awareness campaigns and providing clean water from two water kiosks that are set up at the Simerro Market Center and Ranga’la Center.
Thank you, Join the Pipe, for helping to raise funds to set up a water kiosk at Simerro Primary School to help reduce water borne diseases that are affecting the school and community due to scarcity of safe water in the area.

We are thrilled to help JanKean Progressive School set up a water kiosk in the Matopeni area of Kayole. The kiosk has reduced school failure and drop out rates, poverty, water scarcity, food insecurity, lack of electricity and poor sanitation facilities. Previously, women and children of the community traveled more than 8km a day to access water from the river, and then were tasked with carrying heavy loads on their heads back home.

Thanks to the Rabobank Foundation collaboration and Join the Pipe, we have installed the first clean drinking water station at Maximum Impact Center in Kayole to help the school students and the community residents get access to constant clean water. Gratitude to all volunteers and community members who helped to create this amazing moment.
