SEMPEWUETI COMMUNITY WATER PROJECT AND OLCHORRO ONYOKIE COMMUNITY WATER PROJECTS
Share this entry
My name is Jackson S. Ole Kisimir, from Namanga location of Kajiado Central Sub-County, Kajiado County. I’m a volunteer and Social Mobilizer in my Village-INTINYIKA/OITI. This maasai community leaves in small land holdings of 5 acres each for a family with an estimate of 8-12 family members.(Note that this community is polygamous in nature).
There are about 500 parcels of 5 acres each. This means that with an average of 10 members in a family, we estimate that this community has a population of 5000 people and counting.
This area was set as an irrigation scheme with water expected from Oldonyo Orok Hills (NAMANGA HILLS) upstream. Two community water projects serve this community for the last 16 years (SEMPEWUETI COMMUNITY WATER PROJECT AND OLCHORRO ONYOKIE COMMUNITY WATER PROJECTS).
Recently a Government of Kenya initiative saw 100 pans constructed for the community but came with its challenges (accessing the water from the pan (4metres deep) and poor quality water (no filtration). This community has several schools and churches…I nominate this community for filtration of the water from the pans.

The selected (village/school) is one with the highest number of ‘votes’ at start of the respective week — voting determines when (not if) this nominee starts to get water, toilets or reusable sanitary towels.
Although ‘voting’ makes little difference to your day, it enables accelerateUHC to give water, toilets or reusable sanitary towels to ALL nominees in a TRANSPARENT manner.

Ours is a truly growing giving as we weave the giving into the fabric of daily lives where: everywhere in the World: businesses publish adverts, logos & barcodes; consumers see the adverts, logos & barcodes and pay for or buy advertised services & products; and, consumers dispose of related waste and collect related garbage around the clock.
