Konglu Ezekiel Odupol stands in the bottom a well he dug manually to provide water for his plantation in Kajiado County, Kenya, 9th of October 2016. Rather than choosing the traditional pastorialist Maasai lifestyle, Odupol chose to farm for living. Over the past decade, overwhelming drought has afflicted the Maasai and Odupol's well has been dug deeper and deeper untill now there is barely any water to withdraw. In addition to the increasing drought due to climate change, the wells have gone dry because of sand harvesting the river bottoms. Sand harvesting is a short-sighted mean to make a living, for the people of Kajiado that have no other opportunities.
