Four years of failed rains means that Kenya is now facing its worst drought in decades, causing millions of people, cattle and crops to die. The communities Haller works with typically have water for only 3 months per year, and have to walk for hours to collect water. Without water, no crops grow, and many of the children suffer from malnutrition.
Haller’s water programme helps small-holder farmers harvest water, and then use it effectively and safely. Access to water is the first step to helping communities overcome poverty; it underpins food production, health, education, and improved livelihoods.
