Summary

We are trying to make water available to women & children of Tanzania living under physical torture; walking 20 miles for less than 5 gallons, by constructing a water tower that will make H2O available to 23,000 by the end of 2012. This project will change the dynamics in education, economic, health, agriculture and sanitation, making the world a better place.Please Join us by supporting the project.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In Tanzania today, women & children in Rorya villages are forced to walk more than 20 miles to fetch less than 5gal of water from Lake Victoria, leaving home 4am returning 12 noon with half a bucket, physically and mentally exhausted. The weak who cannot afford to walk to the lake, remains to die of dehydration or out of water-borne outbreaks such as cholera, dysentery etc. when they drink contaminated, stagnant and dirty water in ponds with human and animal secretions,

How will this project solve this problem?

Water within 5 minute walk, will bring improved living conditions. People's health, and lives in these communities will improve. Economic, agriculture, and environment will drastically change for better. Women will be empowered economically, while children getting the much needed time to attend school to improve their literacy levels. As of right now, very few of them can either read or write because much of their time is spent in search for water.

Potential Long Term Impact

Clean water availability in this community will bring several positive changes to the community, women bearing the burden of walking distances in search for water, will engaged in other economic activities. Academic aspect will tremendously improve in the community as many students will devote their time to study as opposed to searching for water. Water borne illnesses will be eliminated as such, improving health conditions of the people. Last but not least, food sustainability will be achieved
