That he stands out walking along Middle Avenue in Menlo Park, Sabore Ole Oyie does not dispute — and it's not just because he's tall.

This article is about a Maasai warrior. Sabore Ole Oyie is a Maasai warrior who has traveled to the US several times. While he is there, he talks to school children, about what it is like to become a Maasai warrior. He is also trying to raise money to build 400 wells for the Ewaso Nyiro region of Kenya. He is wanting to build wells because they provide clean water, and also allow girls who would usually spend time getting water, to go to school. He has currently raised $80,000, with each well costing around $25,000 to make. Education has always been an important thing in Sabore's life, and he is a high school graduate. When he is talking to school children, he tells them about the three stages of life for the Maasai men, childhood, warrior, and elder.
This article is very useful in helping my understanding of Africa. It shows me that not only are the governments and NGOs in countries in Africa trying to help, but so are some of the people. It also shows me that while it is common for girls to not get education in the Ewaso Nyiro region of Kenya, some people are trying to stop that, and give girls equal opportunities to boys.
I think that the topic discussed in this article is very interesting. I find it interesting that Sabore has traveled to America several times to help raise money for wells, and educate children. I also like that Sabore has realized the need for clean water, and instead of just thinking about it, he is actually acting on it. I find him a inspirational person, and think that other people should see him as an example.
