Rabai is a large village in northern Kenya. It is located in Baringo County which is about a five hour drive north of Nairobi. It is comprised of about 2000 people mostly from the Tugen tribe. They have tremendous needs dealing with malaria, cholera, typhoid, limited and unclean water, scarcity of food, medical deficiencies, and limited education.

Working for a beyond profit company is a unique experience and privilege. As our company launches projects and pursues changing the world, this produces a profound impact on our employees. Below are some of the comments they have shared concerning the impact working for Robertson Family Water has had on their lives. As a bonus, we share testimonies from our Kenyan villagers and the impact RFW has had on them as well.
You may say, “Wow, it’s amazing what you’ve done in such a short time.” Absolutely. We have a great cause, a great team, and a committed company. You can be a part of what we’re doing simply by giving, and you don’t have to give much. The following story is one such example.
The World Health Organization reported in April of 2009 that malaria deaths dropped by 66% in the nation of Zambia. Now this was unprecedented. So what happened? 3.6 million mosquito nets were distributed to the Zambian people between 2006 and 2008. What’s amazing is that those nets were donated by thousands of people who only gave one net. Yet they knew that if enough people gave a little, together they’d make a huge difference. And that’s exactly what happened. Those people own that statistic! So, if what we’re doing is tugging at your heart and you want to be someone who does a little so that, together, we’ll do a lot, considering giving to our next project.
