The County Government of Bomet has received two borehole water projects from philanthropist Mukesh Akshar, serving over 1,300 students in Chemagel and Rongena-Manaret Wards.
On a daily basis, Kipajit water project can produce 40,000 litres serving students in Akshar Secondary School-Kibori and environs while Kipngosos project can produce 30,000 litres serving Kipngosos Primary and Secondary schools.
Additionally, Kipajit water borehole project is set to serve over 500 community households.
Speaking on behalf of Governor Dr Hillary Barchok, Water CECM Peter Tonui, thanked Akshar saying that the projects will now offer relief to students and local residents who have been trekking long distances to fetch water.
He added that the county government will reciprocate the kind gesture by acquiring and installing solar systems that will be integrated into the existing projects to reduce electricity costs.
On his part, Mr. Akshar thanked the county government for creating an enabling environment for wellwishers and development partners to improve the livelihoods of Bomet residents.
