Oloosokon Village, Kenya

Oloosokon Village, Kenya

Oloosokon Village in Mara is located in Aitong, Kenya. The local population of Oloosokon is approximately 3,000 people and is part of the larger Aitong village of 10,000 people, none of whom have access to clean water today. The site chosen is right next to the local school. The school has no access to water and the children who get to go to school have to go through the entire day without any water. Many girls in Oloosokon do not have the opportunity to go to school because they have to find water for their families.

Young girls and women set out each day to find water, sometimes walking miles each way through the dangerous savannah of Massai Mara. Massai Mara is filled with wildlife such as Lions, Elephants, Cheetahs, and water buffalo.

Oloosokon’s sources of water currently include rainwater, puddles, and river water. These bodies of water are contaminated and can cause sicknesses like Dysentery, Typhoid, and Cholera.

David Njapit lives in Oloosokon Village with his family.  David is a wildlife guide working at Offbeat Mara, a safari camp located in the Massai Mara wildlife reserve. One of the families David guided told him about the village drill, and he was fascinated.  A Village Drill crew visited this village in February of 2022 and plans are now in place to drill a borehole and install a solar pump.  Please support our efforts to help this remote community have access to life saving clean water.
