Water for Attir - Connections

GHNI has Transformational Community Development programs in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Five of the seventeen TCD villages in Africa are in Kenya and all are are in the area around Isiolo town in the central part of the country. They make up the "Isiolo Cluster" and Attir is the newest TCD participate.

The village of Gambella has graduated, but due to special circumstances related to nearby Attir, is part of Attir's TCD experience. Read about this unique and exciting program here. Much attention is being devoted to this important farming partnership, using the results of Gambella's TCD program and their willingness to share with Attir.

Water for Attir is a special element of the project and is aimed at quickly getting a well into the village to provide a source of clean water within the boundaries of the village itself. Benefits are a supply of clean water and not having to invest time and energy into a six mile round trip. Furthermore, a village well provides the women and older children more security as the trip exposes them to dangerous elements of the central Kenyan bush.
