FAD contributed to the fund raising for 7 major pipeline projects that brought clean mountain spring water into rural communities and the lowlands.
Over 36,000 people benefit from these water projects in Eng’aboli, Intaleta, Lerangwa, Olmolog, Engarenaibor Primary School, Losiaiti, and Karao/Elang’ata-engopito. A wonderful unintended consequence water provides is the transformation of village life where Churches, Schools and community evolve.
Ingutot Building Project
With the help of our supporters we provided the funding of this building for the Ingutot Maasai community! Used as a classroom during the week and a Church on the weekends, this project is helping us provide ministry, education, and hope to Tanzania.
As of 2023, our supporters have supported the teachers for nine preschools in remote Maasai communities within Longido. Early childhood education is fundamental in breaking the poverty cycles in third-world countries! Many of these schools are now self-sustainable financially.
FAD-funded preschools serve 780 each year in these areas: Ingutot/Kale, Mbarangati, Laararoi, Entirima, Lodung’oro, Loondolwo, Ewas namanaa, Ngailupa, Engusero
Kilimanjaro Climb for a Cause!
In 2021, a group of Friends for African Development gathered sponsorships to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in awareness of the need for fresh, clean water in Tanzania.
Discipleship and Evangelism Gatherings
Since our founding, FAD has hosted several large gatherings in Longido to provide ministry and discipleship support. These include women’s conferences, local Pastor’s conferences and a Regional Pastors Conference that bring a multitude of people from nearby Kenya.
In this very remote part of the Longido District, your support helped us dig a water well that now briggs water to a very large area. FAD’s donations helped provide infrastructure for the water tank, a generator to pump it, and piping to distribute.
