Water under Kenya - level 1

Water under Kenya - level 1

23-09-2013 14:00

Africa is very dry. It is a big problem for people. Life is hard, but this is now changing.

Scientists find a big lake. It is in Kenya. The lake is underground. The lake has a lot of water. It has enough water for Kenya for 50 years. There are also small underground rivers. The rivers go into the lake. The lake gets water from the rivers. The lake has always enough water.

This changes everything for Kenya and other African countries, too.

Difficult words: dry (doesn't have enough water), scientist (very clever person who is an expert in something), lake (a lot of water which you can drink).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
