Bringing water to Enkito's children

I've been chatting with Jeff of Staff of Hope, the Raleigh, NC funded drill team in Kenya.
Jeff is currently in Oloitoktok deep in true one-road country to the right of Amboseli National Park and about 90km east of Enkito.
In the next week the hydrogeological survey and environmental studies will be completed to determine how deep to drill the well for the village. We are busy fundraising for this drilling so please pass this video on and help where you can, donating to the website [top left].
Our volunteers; Emma, Shiv and Petr are busy helping with the community and teaching maths, social siences, environment studies and helping with English. Currently the children have to go home to eat during the break and it takes up a lot of time. Most schools can apply for funding for school meals and we need to assist the community in this but after February's severe drought killed so many of the maasai's vital cattle, they had to let go their 2nd teacher.
The women of the village are currently walking almost 8 km from the village to the nearest water point to get drinking water and there is no water available for the children when they are in school so please help us bring water to Enkito.
