A couple from Bucks County is taking their family to Kenya to help bring clean water to families in need.

Chris and Ashley Gasperi are the founders of Ekenywa, a non-profit organization working to improve the quality of life for school aged children in Kenya.

This is not the couple's first time going to Kenya, but this time they plan to drill wells to provide clean water to schools in the city of Nakuru.

They hope the clean water will help children avoid the waterborne parasites and illnesses that have interfered with their education.

The Gasperis also want to include people back here in the US with a selfie challenge.

Over the next four weeks, they are encouraging people to donate $10 to the Ekenywa organization, then take a selfie with a water bottle and tag three friends to do the same.
