Our projects:
Maasai Water Project – Kajiado County
To support the provision of clean water, Rotary Club of Nairobi East helped with the construction of boreholes, rainwater harvesting tanks and construction and repair of water piping between 2011-2013. This was done in partnership with the Rotary Club of New Port / USA and a local community based organization (POWER – Pastoralist Organization for Water and Environment Research). There was financial support from a Global Grant worth $200,000, a club in Japan, and smaller grants from The Rotary Foundation. A project visit in late August 2013 showed a fully operational borehole with a solar-operated water pump near the Leshuta Primary school in Kajiado Central. The beneficiaries include several hundred school children, cattle, and private households who can save the time it takes for a walk of several kilometers to fetch water from a river or well.
