Frequently Asked Questions
Below you’ll find answers to the questions we get asked the most
Water is the most important necessity for any living thing. Without water, life cannot sustain itself. There are more than half a billion people in the world without access to clean water. Though the number is large, we work every day to tackle this water crisis. We have built more than 100 deep water wells in Tanzania and provided water to tens of thousands of people. We are thrilled with the work we have accomplished, however, our work is just beginning. We need your help to raise awareness and give support to our many projects – we cannot do this work without you
Why do you only work in Tanzania?
Tanzania is the largest country in East Africa. With a population with over 52 million people, there are more than 27 million people who still do not have access to clean water. We have been working in the rural communities of Tanzania for more than a decade which has led to a strong relationship within the villages we work in. With the support of the local government in the districts, we are able to work together to bring change, better opportunities and resources to those in need.
