Maji Ni Uhai: Water is LifeVillagers in Tanzania sometimes travel miles to bring water back to their community. The water is dirty and can cause serious diseases. With your help, we want to drill 15 wells throughout Tanzania in 2019 to bring clean water to our brothers and sisters in the east African country.

Tanzania is an east African nation bordering the Indian Ocean with a population of nearly 60 million people. Many of those people have lived for generations with the threat of serious disease because of water conditions.
Many households in rural Tanzania typically spend more than a quarter of their day fetching water for their family.
