About this Campaign

The SIVAP project we have undertaken is a “Water Irrigation Line Project'' that will support 100 small households in Cheptais, Kenya. The water irrigation line is a procedure in which water is transferred from its main source to areas where it can be used to water plants such as farms. The structural idea behind the project is to provide a 10-kilometer line counting with water pipes to be used and fit, as well as 6” water pipe both PPR, Galvanized, normal pipes, and trenches in this very same water line. Water registration from water users, water boards, and water gravity flow will be kept on track to assure the success and sustainability of the project.
