Join us in our quest for clean water to HUNDREDS of children and families by sponsoring us and praying for us today! Thank you very much!!! Or as they say in Tanzania “Asante Sana!”
THIS IS THE HUGE IMPACT YOUR DONATION WILL HAVE!!!
- Your support of our challenge as we climb the mountain visible from Moshi will allow St. Magreth (local church) to drill a borehole into a below surface well, test the well water for purity, repair and install an electrical water pump, install piping, and then install two holding tanks that ensure safe, reliable water delivery. Upon completion of this 12-month project, the church, student center and surrounding community will have access to safe, clean water. The impact will be immeasurable. Along with their family members and others in the community, the people of Moshi will have plenty of water to cook, clean their food and flush toilets on a regular basis. They will also be trained and equipped to improve their hygiene practices. As the availability of clean water prevents the spread of disease, caregivers will save money on medication. Parents will miss less work and increase their incomes. Education will improve as children miss less school due to preventable sickness. Throughout this community, clean water will result in transformed lives.
- Meanwhile, 112 miles south of Kilimanjaro, residents of the smaller city of Kibaha, Tanzania, also face challenges related to clean water and sanitation. One of Compassion’s newest child development centers is Mkuza Anglican Student Center, which serves 250 children and 150 caregivers in its community is overcrowded with two latrines, the latrine-to-student ratio is one to 125. They will have twelve pit latrines constructed to better meet the needs of its registered children. These facilities will put the ratio at one latrine to 20 students. With a concrete foundation, brick construction, and storage tanks connected to a supply of fresh water, the facilities will greatly reduce waiting times. Hand-washing stations will help children maintain good hygiene, and stalls with latching doors will offer much-needed privacy. Following a four-month construction process, the new latrine facilities will help reduce sanitation-related sickness among the children and caregivers at Mkuza while also increasing school attendance.
