A typical day for John Mpaapa, local humanitarian, involves scouting rural Narok for communities in need, and sitting with its elders to discuss the weighty matter of improving their access to water.

John works for ‘Water 4 Wildlife’, a Community Based Organization based in the Lemek Conservancy, which is within the Maasai Mara ecosystem in Narok County. During the dry season, communities walk a treacherous 28kms to Aitong Center, in search of water. Davis and Shirtliff, in partnership with “Water 4 Wildlife” have rehabilitated and Solarized an old, broken down community borehole in Ole Sugun, Lemek conservancy. The borehole now serves a large community of approximately 50,000 people.

During a joyous and very colorful handing over ceremony, the community elders thanked D&S for its contribution to society and particularly those among the 19 million Kenyans, who suffer greatly for their lack of access to clean drinking water.
