Amesbury for Africa is a unique partnership between a rural town in Massachusetts and a Kenyan farming village near Lake Victoria in East Africa. The overall purpose of our partnership is to exchange visitors between our two communities. Through these visits we develop friendship, trust and a history of working together to make better lives for our two peoples. The secrets to our success are shared history, networking, flexibility, and a long time horizon. Together these build long-term sustainability. The year 2012 marks our 25th year of working and sharing together. Obtaining a clean, safe supply of drinking water was a high priority in Esabalu. In 1996, Amesbury Rotary Club received a grant from Rotary Foundation in Evanston, IL to construct a secure ground-water system for the community of Esabalu. The system was completed in 2007 and consists of deep wells, with submersible electric pumps to raise water to elevated cisterns. The cisterns supply piped water to public kiosks and metered service to private homes and schools.
