KENYA WELL PROJECT
With an ongoing, severe drought, the Maasai are looking for ways to capture water to drink. Bore holes (wells) have not been very successful, so Bay Leaf Baptist Church has helped through the annual 5K Run to raise funds to pay for of capture the rain water. The water is then diverted into underground storage tanks.
KENYA WATER HOLE PROJECT
In the dry, desolate land of the Maasai Mara, the Maasai people are herdsmen. Their status in the community and their wealth is measured in the number and quality of animals they own. East Africa has been in a severe drought for many years, so the watering of animals is critical. Bay Leaf Baptist Church has assisted the Maasai in capturing water through a catch basin project to provide for their animals.
