Mwinyi was our first project! We were able to help 2,443 people in October, 2018 when the taps were turned on. Before we were able to provide the people of Mwinyi water, they were digging holes in the ground that were close to 50 feet deep! The water they were drinking was giving the people there water-borne diseases. We were able to provide 16 water taps throughout the village, and the generous people of Mwinyi are even sharing their new clean water with the 2 surrounding villages.
In December 2019, we completed our first full drip irrigation project! The people of Mwinyi received seeds for onions, tomatoes, sweet peppers and okra, as well as training from professional agronomists. The lead farmers are learning new skills every day in crop nutrition, soil and nursery management, pest and disease control as well as harvesting methods. Today, the people of Mwinyi Village are happier and healthier than ever with clean water and clean food!
Ndebwe is home to 4,600 people. Their previous water source was a seasonal "spring" that was only available during the rainy season. On April 19th, we were so happy to be able to turn the taps on for the people of Ndebwe! Since the village is so large, we were able to install 38 different taps throughout the village so every person has a tap near them!
The people of Huzi Village had to walk over 5 miles to get to to the water hole, and then wait over 5 hours in line to get water that was filled with diseases. We were so happy to help the 2,247 people located in Huzi Village.
Mayeto is our next project that is home to 3,742 people. During the rainy season, the people rely on digging holes in the dirt along a river stream even though the water in contaminated, however when the dry season comes, the villagers are no longer able to dig holes, but have to walk close to 7 miles to get water. We are so excited to be able to provide the people of Mayeto water soon!
