A PROJECT to provide a village in Kenya with clean water has received funding support from local students. Eva Kimaru, 23, and her classmates have raised more than £200 for the Gacharu Water Project, set up by her father Rev Benson Kimaru, to lay water pipes in his family’s home village. Many villagers in Gacharu currently walk over three miles to get water from the river. The aim of the project is to provide sanitation as well as ready access to clean water. The students held a cake sale and sponsored silence for this cause and with the money they raised the village will be able to pay for 100 lengths of water pipe.
