Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: Kenya

Location: Eorr Enkitok,Narok County

Total Budget: $145,534

Area of Focus: Water and sanitation



......This Project is Fully Funded......

---The objective of this global grant project is to provide a sustainable source of clean water to the Maasai community of Eorr Enkitok in the rural hill country of the Western Rift Valley of Kenya, about 145 km north west Nairobi.

--The project proposes to complete an existing deep fresh water well drilled by the World Bank and Rift Valley Water Service in June 2014 by equipping it with a submerged electrical pump, connected to the local power grid, and an elevated 24,000 liter holding tank connecting it to gravity fed 8.4 km long pipeline distribution system. This project when finished will benefit about 10,000 people in five cluster communities, as well as three schools and an orphanage, downhill from the well head. Five water kiosks and four live stock watering troughs will be strategically placed in or near the communities along the pipeline path to service the communities and their livestock..

Once established, the system will be self-sustaining through a water tariff business model operated by the communities. This will pay for the electricity for the pump operation and minor system maintenance.

--Technical operations orientation training will be provided to the local community water committees by the contractor and MERC. Hygiene, clean water use and the sustainability business operating model training will be provided by MERC. Project outcome will be monitored and assessed by the RC of Naivasha and MERC, along with assistance from the students from Prescott College, AZ, who will be on field studies with the Maasai communities.

--Status:

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
