Captain Terry Masango has been working to get the grants and the matching funds. Terry has also been working to get a club in Africa to help with the El Cajon Rotary project. Dep was a member of another Rotary club and has already built some wells in Africa. He told us a story of how he lost he child due to poor water quality. He has made this his life's work.
