President Matt Ylvisaker of Moving Forward Africa has visited Nyamor Village five times since 2007. Nyamor Village is an impoverished community in Western Kenya. Nyamor has many developmental obstacles most importantly the lack of drinkable water. Villagers use up to five hours a day in labor to obtain clean water. Due to the amount of time expended in finding water the Villagers do not have the resources for anything beyond subsistence agriculture. Agriculture is the best way to create economic improvement for the area. Kenya studies have shown that larger agricultural projects are better for economic development.
