Well, Pipelines and Cisterns Improve Water Supplies for the Maasai

Tax-deductible donations to the Maasai Cultural Exchange Project Water Fund from US individuals support the drilling of water "bore holes" in the Kenyan bush country known as Maasailand. In the Ngong Hills region the average water bore hole depth is approximately 600 feet. The estimated cost to drill a water well is $40,000, which includes government permits, surveys, pump, cistern and diesel generator.


MCEP received funds for our first well drilling in December 2005. Donations have been contributed for seven wells with a goal of ten water wells to directly benefit the Maasai in the vicinity of Olosho-oibor Kenya.
