• Boreholes

Contribute towards cost of $10,000 each

Prevent deadly diseases.

Most 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 unprotected hand dug hole. This is one of our most expensive projects. Our community lives scattered in a low-lying mountain range, making it too difficult to dig through the rock. Machinery is needed. And it's expensive. But water is a must! Help us bore through the rock and access clean water for our village friends.

• Fruit Trees

$15/tree

Promote nutrition.

Trees are essential for keeping mountain sides from eroding, and river beds from drying up. Giving a village with fruit trees provides nutritious snacks necessary to bring a balance in their diets. It also allows for excess fruits to be sold, providing income for families to use on household necessities.

• Toilets • Hygiene Education • Supplies

$125/toilet

Avoid disease and infection.

 

Imagine your family's first toilet!! Complete with a concrete pedestal seat to sit on! No more squatting over a hole in the ground. Each toilet given to a village family is a MUST in keeping families healthy, allowing for the children to attend school, rather than caring for sick parents and relatives.

• Sewing Skills • Menstrual Hygiene Management • Hygiene & Sewing Supplies

Empower girls.

 

It cannot be expressed adequately enough the importance of investing in girls and young women! Educating them with a skill to start by helping them with hygiene, empowers them endlessly. Knowledge will help them escape extreme poverty and all that goes along with it.
