Recently, NWM Gives Back donated to FREE THE CHILDREN, a charity with a mission to free children and their families from poverty and exploitation around the world. Free the Children has created ADOPT A VILLAGE, an international, innovative, holistic program which helps develop education, clean water and sanitation, heal care, food security, and alternative income, in order to empower communities to bring themselves out of poverty.

Our donation was put towards an impactful clean water project in a Kenyan community called Kipsongol. The Adopt A Village program has been working with Kipsongol to raise money for a borehole which creates a clean, sustainable source of water this, and other, communities.  With the help of our donation, the program successfully raised enough money to move forward with the borehole project.

The borehole tunnels about 2 kilometers down to reach groundwater. It now creates a transformative shift for the entire community. The clean water not only improves overall health, but also impacts agriculture and sanitation. In addition, children are now enabled to go to school, rather than trekking long distances to access water each day.

NWM Gives Back is thrilled to receive this update from Kipsongol.  We look forward to supporting Free The Children and their Adopt A Village program.
