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

Her name is Bridget Meaney and she was a senior at Castilleja Highschool in Palo Alto, CA. In January 2010 during Castilleja’s Global Week, she heard Sabore’s presentation and was moved by his talk and saddened because of his description of the plight of the Maasai women. She asked if she could help or contribute and then reached out and handed me our first crumpled up $15.00. That’s what started this whole project – the gift from a 17 year old. Bridget is now a sophomore at Duke University. She was home during the Christmas break and had scheduled a visit with one of her teacher’s at Castilleja. We stayed around campus to meet her and let her know that her initial $15.00 has turned into $35,000!!! Just to show you how special she is – she handed us another $20.00 contribution during our chat.

“We have been busy studying facts about Kenya and its culture,” said Haskin. “The students have been preparing for Sabore’s visit by learning about the animals, geography and customs of Kenya, as well as studying the Kiswahili language and creating mock passports. They have been very excited for him to come.”

“Growing up Maasai, you learn to understand the direction of the wind, the sounds of birds and the footprints of animals, to tell the difference between the footprints of lions, gazelles, leopards, giraffes and water buffalo

“That cause is this: she wants to raise enough money to build two wells in the Ewaso Nyiro region of Kenya, so that local girls can spend their time going to school instead of walking six to eight miles each way to the nearest river, where they obtain all of the water their village uses for drinking and for all other purposes.”
