Our Story: After traveling to Kenya with Kids for Peace in 2016 & 2018… we could not un-see the poverty caused by a lack of clean, safe and accessible water, so we have dedicated 2019 to raising money to dig a well and install a water distribution system to the 10,000 residents of the village of Mikei in southwestern Kenya. The poverty there is heart-breaking, but they have a chance to escape it, if they can stop walking for water all day every day, and work instead.

WE LOVE THIS PROJECT BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH PROMISE: We have a trusted non-profit organization, Rieko Kenya, on the ground in Mikei ready to manage the project and waiting with an engineering team to begin work. Rieko also also does all they can to help the villagers secure employment, which is available, as well. In the end, the well will increase workforce participation in the area significantly.

We genuinely believe this is a life-changing opportunity for us, for you, and for them. And we will continue to raise $$$ until this project is funded.

Please check out the information on the following pages and visit Sierra’s Well-Wisher page if you are ready to donate. We are running our donations through Kids for Peace (501(c)3) here in Carlsbad and 100% of all donations will go directly to funding the well project.
