In Kenya at Thompson falls

ABW eNews June 2024

Dear Eric,

I'm returning from Kenya after almost two weeks with four inspiring students from our Saruk leadership program. It has been remarkable to witness their growing awareness of the world's needs. Even more inspiring is seeing how well the Better World projects are thriving, particularly in how the local communities have taken ownership of the investments we've made.


In Ndanai, I observed the water well generating income to maintain their facilities. The site was incredibly beautiful and spotless. In two other schools, the students were performing well above average academically, due to the improved facilities.


In the Maasai Mara, Naikarra Comprehensive now accommodates 1,856 students. At another school, where the student population was 280 just two years ago, there are now 350 students with two dormitories and new classrooms. Additionally, the government partnership has been commendable. They have provided water, power, and staff housing to ensure that teachers have comfortable accommodations, especially in the remote communities we support.


All this progress is a direct result of the generosity from our community and our supporters in Canada. Thank you for believing that together, we can make a difference by empowering those in need to help themselves.

Project Updates

New Dental Clinic Equipped

A new dental chair and service delivery unit has been purchased and delivered to the Naikarra Health Centre.


The clinic in this remote community has been the site of several free clinics from ABW dental teams in recent years. To create a longer-term solution for the community, ABW’s dental program manager, Dr. Kelvin Hill, raised funds to purchase the entire station, including tools and a compressor, so a Kenyan dentist can work on patients.


In an agreement with Narok County health services, ABW pays for the travel costs of the dentist to visit twice per month to see patients. The county pays the dentist for his work.

Well, Well, Well

Throughout Kenya, ABW is continuing to get more glug for the buck by drilling shallow wells.


In areas throughout Nyandarua County near the city of Narok, water is sufficiently shallow to be brought to the surface by drilling less than 50 metres, using smaller pumps and less pipe in the process. The total cost is less than 20% of drilling a deep borehole.


Water provision continues to be an issue throughout the country, and ABW continues to investigate innovative and efficient ways of providing it.

Picking Up The Pace In Tanzania

With a second crew of contractors at work, ABW is now doing two projects simultaneously in Tanzania. The new classrooms and toilets being built at Fune Primary School and the renovation of seven classrooms and an office at Mwelya Primary School are both funded by Cathy Roozen of Edmonton.

Developing a second construction crew under in-country project manager Rama Kaoneka will open the door to expanding our work in Tanzania, should more donors be interested in supporting the country’s development.

Opening Young Eyes

Four graduates of the Saruk Centre for Leadership Development recently toured Kenya with Executive Director Eric Rajah.


Anna Flores, Teresa Bruce, Kyle Bacalso and Elijah O’Sullivan visited schools and clinics to learn about international philanthropy and acquire firsthand knowledge and experience of improving circumstances in a developing country.
