Realising Water with the local community, welcome to Pamoja Kenya
‘Together’, that is the meaning of the word pamoja in Swahili, the language they speak in Kenya. And ‘together ‘ is how we want to work with our foundation. We strongly believe that every development has to be achieved in collaboration with the local community. Working together leads to sustainable solutions that are supported by the people for whom we realize the solution. It is our mission to start up, guide and execute projects in Kenya in collaboration with the local community.
We focus on water projects and sanitary projects that create employment for the local community at the same time. NO WATER NO LIFE!
Pamoja Kenia depends on financial support of others We raise funds through donations, events and crowdfunding. We also have a webshop with products handmade in Kenya. 35-50% of the revenue from the webshop goes to our current projects. At Pamoja Kenia you are always assured that your gift will actually be spent on projects that benefit the local population.
