The Samburu Project

AirKenya is delighted to have a role in the work of The Samburu Project to transform the lives of women and girls in this remote region of Kenya by providing clean sources of water.

To date, The Samburu Project has drilled 147 wells which supply water to over 100,000 people and most impressively, 93% of them are still operational today. The impact on health, education, and women’s empowerment is reflected in the fact that education, especially for girls, has doubled in these well partner communities. Additionally, Women are now setting up small businesses and getting involved in small-scale commercial farming. Infant deaths caused by waterborne diseases have been eradicated in TSP well communities. 

In December 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, The Samburu Project, in collaboration with PadMad Kenya, conducted their annual menstrual hygiene and reproductive health workshop for over 800 girls in Archer’s Post, Samburu. Tourism Ambassador for Kenya and world marathon record holder, Eliud Kipchoge, was on hand to offer his support and shine a spotlight on the Samburu region as a tourism location. 

AirKenya is a proud partner of The Samburu Project and provides air transportation for staff and board members to support their mission.
