Our first well in Tanzania came about after being approached by a group from Florida led by Gay and Ronnie Rose. The Rose’s had raised some money in Florida and realized they needed help negotiating with drillers in Tanzania. We started talking to the drillers on their behalf and agreed to help fund three wells, some of which were collaboration between Drop in the Bucket, the Rose’s and Living Water International.
The local Maasai community was very motivated and had been organized by a local man, Kelly Zeramula, who was involved in building a school in the area. With everyone’s participation, five wells were installed, four of them partially funded by Drop in the Bucket.
