This project breaks into two major parts:

(1.) Well construction, including a way to generate needed electrical power in an area without electricity, and

(2.) A safe, reliable way for people to donate.

Despite the busyness and business of the holiday season, during the last few days I received positive news in both areas.

First, the Water/Sanitation Coordinator for International Service Projects of the local Rotary District quickly responded with a long e-mail after Jackson and I answered a few questions for him.  Whew!  This project is very complicated but Rotary folks have the expertise we need to make this well happen.  Jackson has some work to do to obtain information about local contractors for well and windmill in the Narok, Kenya, area and also provide information about local Rotary clubs that could provide construction oversight.

Second, Global Giving sent me forms to complete.  Global Giving consolidates small groups that, alone, would be lost in the tidal wave of charities on the Internet.  A giver can readily locate the charity of choice and feel assured the donation is safe, tax-deductible, and will reach the intended group.  Naturally, they need a great deal of paperwork from a group to prove the organization will indeed use the money well.  (Pun intended: in our case use it well for a well.)

So we begin the New Year with hope for more progress.  Many thanks to all of you who read this blog and we hope you move forward with us to build Oltorotua a well.  If you have advice or information to share, please e-mail me or leave a comment.  HAPPY NEW YEAR!
