Donations to MCEP
Donations to MCEP provide on-going projects in education and water development
Donations to MCEP provide on-going projects in education and water development. We look back with both gratitude and pride for the support of our local community in funding projects for our Maasai friends in 2012. We are happy to report that our 7th well is now completed. Many miles of pipeline have been laid to transport water to schools, churches and infirmaries. Also funded were cisterns for water storage and greenhouses to grow vegetables increasing sustainable food sources for people and livestock.

Our ultimate goal is to help raise funds for a total of ten wells shared by 5,000 Maasai. Additional pipeline and cisterns to transport and store clean water, and greenhouses located near the wells with drip irrigation will help provide sustainable food projects. Administration of student scholarships also remains a priority. Your financial help is so critical to the future of the Maasai and we hope that you will be able to continue supporting us with your donation for 2013. Several choices are available for donations (see below). To varying extent, all funds help Maasai women gain independence from the difficult daily chore of providing water for their families.
