Nearly half the people in Tanzania are without access to clean water. Besides drinking water, basic hygiene practices like hand washing are critical to maintaining health, paramount during the COVID-19 pandemic. At our school, we have a limited supply. The government turns on our school’s water line just twice a week for a few hours. During the dry season, our supply is inadequate for drinking, cooking, cleaning classrooms, flushing toilets, construction, watering plants, and washing hands. It has become critical that we address this need now, and secure our water future.
Our mission is to build an underground water storage tank to capture the plentiful water of the rainy season and store it for the rest of the year – thus achieving water self-sufficiency. With you help, we are well on our way to water security!
