The water supply situtation at the TVAT site in Tanzania is tragic. Water is currently hauled in barrels from a public source 10 kilometers away from their center. Two to five trips are made every week. Now that they have 40 chickens (and want to bring in more), and now that the youths have prepared the ground for cultivating crops for the elders, the lack of a water source on the premises is holding them back.

 Mr. Ramadan Mugenyi (center) drills wells and is highly recommended by his customers. He has recently supplied two schools and the Bishop's house in areas surrounding Benaco.

 The chicken coop funded by the Mendham (NJ) Rotary Club has a capacity of 100 hens and several roosters. Until there is water on the site, the number of chickens that can be properly supported is severely restricted. Eggs from the chickens will supply the elderly with a much needed source of protein in their diet.

 Without water, these plants will wither and die. The past two years, the monsoon rains were late and the crops were lost. On site water will allow for sufficient irrigation.

Well drilling is set to begin this month (August 2018).There will be a solar panel operated pump, two storage tanks, and piping for both irrigation and running water to the main building on the site.

The Village Angels of Tanzania are currently fundraising to cover the costs. Please consider donating to our water project. Any size donation is greatly appreciated. Please specify that your donation is for our water project.
