Muselepete Well Repair

The crew flushes out the pump after it is repaired

In North western Province, Zambia, our partner’s crews are repairing wells.  This well is now once again serving clean, safe drinking water to nearly 1,200 people.

These communities know the value of clean water and are so appreciative of the support they are receiving from you, our donors.

Mabende Kasempa

Located at a Middle Basic School in North western Province, Zambia, this newly repaired well is serving over 1,200 people!

For literally pennies per person, water and health, a better chance at an education, and many more benefits have been returned to this community.  Is there a better way to invest in the developing world.  We don’t think so.

Kalionge Well Repair

Located in North western Province of Zambia this well was repaired in November 2008 with funds raised by you, our donors.

This well now brings clean water to over 700 people restoring a vital resource needed to ensure continued development in the area.

One of the crew noted that “the community members came from their houses excited to see how we were repairing the pump.”

Toronto District Christian High

Take one fish tank, fill with dirty water. Ask fellow students to toss in 50 cents in exchange for a “mud cake” brownie. Tell them about the water problem. Repeat…

The result is an inspiring story of how creative thinking makes a huge difference.

Shelby said, “This project started with two girls wanting to help but finished with a whole school contributing to what we feel is a very helpful, compassionate cause.”
