The residents of Sibei, Narok North Sub-County have benefited from a borehole project from the Ewaso Nyiro South Development Authority (ENSDA).
The project was funded by ENSDA and will benefit over 500 households living around the area that have been forced to source unsafe water from Siabei river.
The borehole project was drilled at Olkeri Model Boarding Primary School and was installed with solar panels.
