Kick Starting Freedom: In February 2015, the Mukogodo Maasai in northern Kenya built their first Excellent sand dam, meaning that people like Titolai Moile, are free from collecting water from far away.

£2.50 a month is enough to provide a Kick Start for three people each year, by bringing access to safe water close to home for life.
