Millennium Fellowship Project: Go Out And Discover
Go Out And Discover is a project that calls for sustainable travelling in our quests to travelling off the beaten paths as we identify and support destitute and marginalized communities that we come across.
This semester we discovered a community in North Kenya who’s proximity is near Lake Turkana. They go by the name of the Elmolo. The major issue they face is potable and safe water since the water is highly alkaline. This hinders agricultural practices as well as cause health problems such as weak bones, discolored teeth, nails, and hair.
