Mission: Empower communities in sub-Saharan Africa to develop appropriate and sustainable development projects and unified community management initiatives.
Results: Through the Mvule Project, we partnered with communities and planted over 25,000 trees. We've granted $18,000 to these communities as start-up capital for community-owned agri-business ventures. Using this money, community members have purchased over 650 goats, purchased land, and built a school. Through the Water Source project, we've dug 11 deep wells, 7 hand-dug wells, 2 shallow wells, 1 harvesting tank, and repaired 4 broken wells. We've also completed Hygiene and Sanitation programs in 15 villages.
Geographic areas served: Uganda, Tanzania, Mozambique, Rwanda
