Mwangea Primary School is located roughly halfway between the Kenya Coast and Tsavo East National Park, near the top of a range of low hills. The rainfall in 2009 was negligible. In February 2010, our friends Nigel and Ann Watson went with one of the parents to visit the school after hearing about their dire water situation. Even after 18 years in Kenya, during which time they had seen many incidences of hardship, they were both deeply shocked. The ONLY source of water, for drinking and cooking at the school was a muddied and stagnant water hole, used also by cattle and goats. There used to be a spring about 3 km distance, over rough terrain, but that had turned saline due to lack of rainfall. The nearest freshwater pipeline was 8 km away, the other side of the range of hills.
