The goal of this project is to bring the gift of a clean, reliable, and safe water source to a Maasai School and community by drilling a well on the school grounds in Losirwa Tanzania, East Africa. This will benefit not only the 340 students who attend the school but also the nearby community of 3,000 Maasai as well. 

The well will be drilled in 2018 by Arusha Water Drilling Company and will include the drilling, installation of the pump, development of the well, tank supply and construction, and distribution point. Doreen Stokes and Ian Stokes will manage the project, both having past water project experience in the local area of Tanzania.

I have worked with this Maasai school since its inception in 2008 and seen it grow from classes given under a shade tree. Quickly it grew from 30 Maasai boys and girls to 125 and presently has 340 students. For the opportunity to learn, these kids will walk 2 to 5 K everyday to get to school. More often than not there is no food or water all day. Then the long walk home. They bring a stick of firewood with them in case there is food to cook.
