A Water Project video created by Anna, a Los Altos High School student, for her English class. She was inspired by Sabore’s presentation at her high school and the effect water has on African Tribes, especially the Maasai community.
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!

Maasai girls and women face similar challenges with animals on their daily 6-mile to 8-mile treks to fetch river water. The girls should be in classrooms, Mr. Oyie said.”
