Water Well project:

The foundation has drilled over 600 water wells greatly assisting in the control of the many water borne diseases.

Community School Project

The Foundation has built 6 schools consisting of a two classroom school house, a staff house,and toilet facilities and each school is equipped with solar lighting. Inevitably the enrollment increases and we have from time to time added additional classrooms and staff houses and have assisted with some of the school supplies needed.

Health Center Project

The Foundation has built 6 clinics and totally renovated an existing clinic. The result is a huge increase in demand fir the services provided and we have added staff houses, maternity wards, mothers shelters as needed. The clinics are supplied with medical equipment, solar lighting and in some cases  running water.

Income Generating Project
