Our mission is to assist the poor, rural communities of Tanzania, Africa, with life's basic necessities – starting with water – to become healthier, better educated, and self sustaining.

Our Focus Is Water

THE FIRST TIME WATER CAME TO MTUMBA 2006

We believe the key to sustainable change is a holistic approach to improving the quality of life, which begins with clean water. We partner with village leaders to develop and execute a successful plan to provide water to that village. We then work with a local civil engineer to create the best approach. Village volunteers collaborate to dig miles of trenches from the water source to the pump house and water distribution points located around the village. The process takes roughly 12 months and an average project requires $100K for full funding.
