Irigithathi

KENYA

 

The 410 Bridge began partnering with the community of Irigithathi in 2017. It borders Mount Kenya National Park, which is the second highest mountain in Africa and the only snow mountain that lies on the Equator. The most common occupations include farming, tourism, and small-scale businesses. Irigithathi is primarily an agricultural community with many small-scale farms. Due to its proximity to Mount Kenya, community members are able to serve the tourism industry at Mount Kenya National Park. Since working with 410, Irigithathi has gained access to a consistent flow of clean, safe drinking water. Its new goal is to now distribute the water to strategic access points throughout the community. They are also working on removing barriers for students to receive a quality education.
