Preparing for Zambia

Thanks to all of you, we have reached our immediate goal and have earned a permanent spot on the Global Giving website!

In exactly one month from today, on January 20th, Adam, Sari and Nuria will meet Tom, Moriah and Amalia in Livingstone, Zambia to begin the water services improvement program and fieldwork for Adam's PhD from Ben Gurion University of the Negev. We will spend most of the next two years in Simango, which is about 2 hours north of Livingstone.

We are also thankful for the other forms of support we have received so far:

-  We have received donations from Netafim (an Israeli irrigation company) and Zeraim Gedera (an Israeli seed company) towards the irrigation component of this project.

-  The local church in Simango has contributed hours and hours of work in preparing a guest home for us (see attached photos).

- AABGU has been a tremendous help in supporting and promoting this project.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed in so many ways. As we continue to raise funds to meet our goal of $50,000, keep spreading the word. Every dollar counts and will allow us to offer more options to more people.

We look forward to keeping you updated as we move forward with the community of Simango.

Thanks for joining us!

Adam, Sari, Nuria, Tom, Amalia and Moriah and AABGU
