Learn About Empowering Lives International

Empowering Lives International is a Christian not-for-profit ministry working in East Africa. The Tanzania ministry is located near Mwanza and serves surrounding areas that struggle with access to clean water. In 2013, ELI trained a team of Tanzanians now called the Mighty Men Drillers, which was inspired by King David’s Mighty Men in 2 Samuel 23. The team is fully capable of all drilling services including: community mobilization, groundwater surveys, water drilling, pump installation, water tank construction, pump repair, and community follow up.
