September 11, 2018 – The two leaders from Softvision’s newest Studio, Arrow Digital, recently traveled to Narok County, Kenya to help improve access to clean water.
Ryan Morgan, Head of Arrow Digital Studio, and Raul Rodila, Managing Partner, Arrow Digital, partnered with Water Mission, as well as other families, to help change the lives of those in the Narok County area.
The project, the first of its kind on the county of Narok, had even better results than originally anticipated. What was going to be a water treatment facility for one village turned out to be something that would be able to provide water to the entire area within walking distance. The team was also able to get pumps to run from the facility to the local school that is a magnate to the surrounding areas and all of those children will now have clean water.
There is no doubt that this mission changed the lives of the men, women and children who live in the Narok area. Many of the local women had spent their days carrying water back and forth from a dirty creek to the village. Their daily lives were dedicated to getting water for their families with water jugs that they carried on their heads and backs. These women have been freed from this everyday struggle.
An experience they’ll never forget, it seems the volunteers’ lives may have been changed as well.
Ryan remarked on the experience, saying “Today I want all of you to take pride in the fact that your work, and a portion of the profits made from that work, have gone to change countless lives of people here in Kenya. As a company, we spend much of our time on delivery, quality, efficiency, sales, billing, and keeping our clients happy. Those are all of the things necessary to make our company a well-run business, but it’s not all about money, it’s about making a difference in the lives around us. Today we can all celebrate having done that together.”
For the first time, Narok’s people have easy access to all the water they need. Congratulations to Ryan, Raul, Water Mission, and all the volunteers on a successful mission.
