The Samburu Project

The Samburu Project is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that collaborates with communities in developing countries to enhance people’s daily lives, addressing one of their most immediate and basic needs: access to clean drinking water.

The nonprofit began its work in the Wamba area of the Samburu District, drilling wells that could be easily maintained and sustained by the community. Former Paramount Television executive Kristen Kosinski conceived The Samburu Project while traveling through Kenya and working with women’s groups from the Samburu Tribe in 2005. Dedicated to providing clean drinking water and community empowerment to the families of the Samburu District, The Samburu Project has changed the lives of more than 20,000 men, women and children since it began drilling wells in 2006.

With water, it becomes possible to impact other aspects of community life including education, healthcare, income generation and women’s empowerment. With water, development happens. Without water, people die.
