The Samburu Project
Official Coin Up Partner
The Samburu Project was founded on the promise of delivering access to clean water. Along the way, we discovered that water does so much more than we imagined. Living according to tribal tradition, women and girls walk up to 12 miles a day attempting to procure water. If they are lucky, the water they find is unclean, originating from gaping, hand-dug wells contaminated by wildlife and livestock. TSP is a grassroots organization, committed to working directly within the Samburu community to end this "walk for water." With access to clean water, water-bourne diseases are eradicated, children thrive, girls go to school, families grow their own food, and women empower themselves through small businesses. Water is Life! Since 2005, TSP has provided access to clean, uncontaminated water to over 80,000 people in 84 communities in Samburu, Kenya. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and an officially recognized NGO in Kenya.
