Well guru Steve King is uploading the grant proposal for Rotary International Foundation and getting ready to visit Kenya!  Since the grant proposal must use the new online “Future Vision” application, the forms and process are new and complex — no quick and easy job.  Then Steve and two Rotary colleagues are off to Oltorotua for a week in February to meet with officers of the Nakuru-Great Rift Valley Rotary, and, with Jackson, get ready for digging and decide on latrine location.  This is a huge step forward!  I’m a little sad at not going.  Not much I could do to help, so I’ll count down the hours till they return!

We had hoped that Jackson could come back with Steve but this would be a difficult time for him to be away from his safari guide job at Amboseli Porini Camp.  His visit to the US is now planned for the end of April/first of May.  Although he wanted to see snow, Maryland’s spring is gorgeous and there will be lots of places to visit.  Including speaking at local Rotary clubs, churches, schools, and other organizations.  Here’s a chance for Marylanders to meet a real Maasai who can explain their culture and you will know your contribution directly helps the people of Oltorotua.  Let me know if you’re interested in scheduling.

Below are photos Carl took of Jackson in his Maasai shuka and explaining medicinal plants to me on a nature walk.
