COMPASSION TANZANIA
July 1, 2011

Compassion Tanzania has drilled 11 wells in Northern Tanzania in the past three years. This has brought clean water to the Villages and cuts the mortality rate by 50 % in these villages. The children can go to school and bring clean water home with them instead of hauling dirty water from mudholes, that they share with the animals. This dirty water is the cause of most of the sickness in these villages. None of the money donated to Compassion Tanzania for wells is used for administrative costs. The people that go to Tanzania to oversee the drilling of the wells pay their own airfare and other expenses. There is no place you can get more 'Bang for your Buck" then to donate to Compassion Tanzania.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing 11 wells being drilled to provide water to the 11 villages.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

like to see a way to help more people catch the vision for Compassion Tanzania and build a larger base of donors.
