Sabore's Well » A project to build wells for the Maasai people

Supetai Well #1 – the Supetai well was completed in May of 2014 and was functioning at maximum capacity.  Through continual water testing samples, it was determined there was a high concentration of naturally occurring fluoride and nitrates in the water.  Sabore’s Well was able to obtain a  solar powered water purification systems that eliminated these contaminates and produce potable water.

It was then discovered the solar pump had malfunctioned and while trying to remove it from the well, it dropped into the casing.  A truck with a grappling hook was dispatched to try and remove the pump, however rocks had entered the casing thus preventing the pump to be extricated.  This has been a very unfortunate set-back and we are working on ways to alleviate the problem and will have a solution soon.

Sabore’s Well is pleased to announce that as of March 2016, it has obtained its own non-profit status as a 501(c)3 organization under the Internal Revenue Service code and can now collect donations directly from donors.  These donations will be tax deductible under IRC Section 170.

We are very excited about the advantages having our own non-profit will bring and the additional services we will be able to provide to the Maasai communities.  We will now be able to have both the drilling of wells and the construction of schools under one umbrella.  This, we believe, will give us more clarity with our donors and the ability to apply for grants.

We thank you for your continued support.

Therese is going back to school in May to attend the Woman Leaders of the World (WLW). A leadership education program offered by Global Women’s Leadership Network.

“Therese is concerned with the lack of early childhood education available to nursery and kindergarten-aged children. “My goal is to start schools on the land donated to each of Sabore’s Wells. Most children do not attend school until they are eight or nine years old. They lose out on the important developmental years because of the distance they have to walk and the unsafe terrain they must travel.” As Sabore’s Wells has completed the first step in bringing water closer to the villages, her plan is to work on the second step by educating the girls.”

Sabore received these amazing collages from the students at Saint Frances Cabrini School in San Jose. They will be used to decorate the new school once it is built. Thank you Mary Saca and her creative students, you are amazing!
