Water for Success
The Elatia Community Centers will be located adjacent to the new water wells as places for the community to gather informally or to participate in various community programs. The Elatia Community Centers will also offer youth mentorship and provide resources for educational success and social improvement, as well as a place for collaborative projects with communities in Wisconsin. IndiMark and Maasai Indigenous Projects will be co-creating this infrastructure, along with residents, as a way to ensure that these centers are designed to meet local community standards and are flexible enough to adapt to a wide variety of activities and future needs.
Elatia (Neighbor) Community Center
The Elatia Community Centers will be focal points for neighborhood activities. Located adjacent to the newly built water wells in Kajiado County, they will be places for the community to gather informally or to participate in various community programs. The Elatia Community Centers will also offer youth mentorship and provide resources for educational success and social improvement, as well as a place for collaborative projects with communities in Wisconsin.
Sponsor a community center. This includes assistance for the construction of a basic four room building; well room, serving kitchenette, multipurpose room (classrooms by day, dormitory at night), and bathrooms.
Scholarship for Success
Scholarships for youth K-8 grade to attend a boarding school. These youths have severe family hardships (orphaned, single parents, etc.). Youth are screened by the school and have already demonstrated appropriate test scores for admittance. Sponsorship of $1,000 covers basic tuition, boarding fees, and uniform.
Thanks to the Franz family from Chicago, two orphaned girls were sponsored to continue their education at Primary School - Ngong Hills and Secondary School - Kibwezi in Makindu, both in Kajiado County.
