Global Grant- Rotary Clubs of Santa Barbara North and Machakos Syokimau
The objective is to drill a water well in a rural area of Kenya near the town of Machakos where the local people have come together and raised funds to build a high school.  Due to the high drop out rate of the high-school-aged children in the area, the families took on the job of building the school from donations.  It has been recognized by the Kenyan government as a registered high school.  The locals would like to make it into a boarding school because of the distance the students need to walk to get to school, and due to the danger of walking in the early mornings and late afternoons, especially for the female students.  Walking long distances is necessary because the school does not have its own water source.
