KILIMANJARO CLIMB FOR WATER IN TANZANIA

Without access to clean water, women and young girls spend a significant amount of time traveling to wells just so that their family and livestock can drink. Improved irrigation, plumbing, and sanitation are desperately needed among the communities in the Longido District in Tanzania.

Friends for African Development is bringing these necessities to the Maasai people in Longido.  In June 2020, our team will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds for well-building projects all across the district. These projects will bring safe, clean water directly into villages for improved quality of life and economic development.

Over 25 million people in Tanzania cannot easily access safe drinking water – half the population.  With your generous help, we can change their story for the better.
