Nets’ Kyrie Irving helped build solar water center in Pakistan
There is no stopping Brooklyn Nets superstar Kyrie Irving in his quest to try and make this world a better place for everyone especially those in need. Recently, the 29-year-old dropped a huge assist off the court by helping to build a solar water center in Sindh, Pakistan in through his K.A.I. Family Foundation in partnership with the Paani Project – a volunteer-run nonprofit organization in Pakistan.
“This center is providing OVER 1000 villagers access to clean healthy water, facilitating farming for families, and providing light to women and children. If you’re looking for a new team to cheer for – we HIGHLY recommend Mr. Irving and the Brooklyn Nets”, the group posted on Twitter on Wednesday.

Clean water is such a privilege that most of us don’t even know how lucky we all are to have easy access to this on a daily basis. For a lot of communities all over the world, acquiring fresh, potable water isn’t as simple as grabbing a glass and heading toward the kitchen. For example, people in Sindh, the community that Irving has helped out, have to either gather water from a river stream or collect from a well system on a daily basis. And, most of not all the time, the water they have to settle isn’t safe nor clean.
This makes the Nets’ seven-time All-Star move such a big one. Amid all the drama surrounding him and his basketball career, it’s pretty clear that Irving’s goal of having an impact in this world is his top priority.
