Can a well in Kenya move?

Sort of a trick question and yes, I admit, it’s a pretty weak one! A well can’t travel but an application to dig one can. Steve King, with whom Jackson and I have been in frequent contact since he took on the job of writing the grant for the Oltorotua Clean Water and Sanitation Project way back in June, 2010, sent us the following e-mail:

The Global Grant Application has been transferred to Tim Winter of the Rotary Club of Fredericktowne so he can submit the application for review by The Rotary Foundation.    I expect that Tim will do this within the next day or so.

I am thrilled that Tim, past president of the Fredericktowne Rotary Club, will take over the grant application as it moves ahead.

The moment is kind of sad too, because Steve is a calm, methodical person who worked harder than most  people do on a paying job! Researching and writing up the nitty-gritty details to get wells to a remote village in the Kenyan bush are incredible. Below is a photo of Steve with Jackson, when he visited Oltorotua to meet villagers and members of the Nakuru Club and determine location of the wells. Jackson, my husband Carl, and I respect him so very much and are pleased to call him friend, so this post is a big thank you to Steve.
