Kenyan Villagers Use High-Tech Solutions to Battle Water Scarcity

Villagers in Nakuru County's Solai village use cards fitted with microchips and pre-loaded with money to dispense and pay for well water, helping to fund the costs of drilling wells. World Vision Kenya and the Nakuru County government funded the wells, giving residents access to clean drinking water, but also using a high-tech solution to prevent waste.
