Water is our most basic need to live, and is one of our most expensive projects! Villagers travel 3 to 5 times a day, up to 1.5 hours each trip, to fetch clean water for cooking, drinking, washing and bathing. This water is more often than not, from a dirty stream, or from an unprotected hand dug hole. Our communities are scattered among a low-lying mountain ranges, making it very difficult to dig through the rock, and requires expensive machinery to do the job. Your contribution helps us bore through this rock to access clean life giving water for our village friends.

Trees are essential for keeping mountainsides from eroding, and riverbeds from drying up. Gifting a village with these fruit trees provides nutritious snacks necessary to bring a balance in their diets and allows for excess fruits to be sold, providing income to families for everyday household necessities.

The importance of investing in girls and young women cannot be expressed adequately enough! Giving girls the knowledge and skills (like sewing) needed to help them with hygiene, empowers them and nurtures invaluable confidence that enables them to escape extreme poverty. Teaching them the skill of sewing, allows them to sew their own reusable menstrual pads, and other products like reusable bags that they can sell for income, enabling them to become part of the economy of their community.
