Good Neighbor Awards About the Program/Main Page
Judy Pitt founded Kazi Yake in 2008 after years of taking mission trips to Kenya to address the need for clean water and hygiene. Twice a year, Pitt takes teams of up to 20 volunteers to provide water filters, train midwives and teach farmers how to increase their crop yields. This past September, she travelled to Kenya to open a well that now brings clean water to 10,000 people in a rural village. She is raising money to build a medical clinic and plans to move to Kenya permanently one day to continue her work full time.
