We are non-profit with a mission to form partnerships with African communities to eliminate rural poverty and improve community health.
More than one billion people -- one sixth of the world’s population -- are forced to drink water contaminated by human and/or animal waste, agricultural runoff, and the like.
Kenya is a country of over 40M astride the equator in East Africa with a population that is about 80% rural. While Kenya is one of the more rapidly developing African countries, some of these areas are among the world's very poorest places.
One such impoverished Kenyan community is the village of Nyamor in South Asembo Location on the north shore of Asembo Bay of Lake Victoria in western Kenya.
Moving Forward Africa's current project is to meet the number one need in Nyamor, by building a hand pump water well. We have already completed a hydrology study, identified an aquifer point to dig, and have received a fair quote for drilling. When the lack of clean water issue is resolved, we move on to other projects that focus on meeting the needs the village council has identified as needing support.
