I am taking on this Walk for Water challenge through Bomet County, Kenya to support Dig Deep and raise funds to help fulfil their mission to unlock opportunity for Kenya's poorest residents, county by county, by ensuring everyone has clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene - forever.
Where Dig Deep work, 8 out of every 10 people lack access to clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene. Most residents live in rural communities and spend hours every day walking to collect dirty water or find a safe place to relieve themselves.
Dirty water and poor hygiene spread diseases meaning even more time is lost to sickness that could have been used to learn and earn.
For a child, this can mean the difference between dropping out of primary school and completing a full education.
For a parent, this can mean the difference between struggling to get by and earning enough to improve the standing of their family.
By reducing the time lost to water collection and preventable disease we remove these barriers to learning and earning, allowing people to lift themselves out of poverty.

Any support to help me reach my target is greatly appreciated, thank you!
