Children at Mvugwe Primary School have to collect water from this dirty pond, as do many schoolchildren in rural Tanzania. Once funds allow we will fund a low cost borehole to bring clean water to their school. Read more about our water projects here.

Patrick, our local rep for Dodoma and director of the Deaf Ministry, hands over sewing machines for a women’s group we funded. These will boost their income and enable them to make school uniforms for their community. Read more about our income-generating projects here.
