Chaguite Santa Maria

Nicaragua 38 beneficiaries

Project Proposal: New Hand Washing Stations Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Western hemisphere. In a country where 37% of rural people have no safe drinking water (UNICEF) and 47% of the forest cover has disappeared over the last 50 years (UN Food and Agriculture Organization), these water, sanitation, and reforestation programs are a critical way to improve the living standards of the rural poor while conserving environmental resources. We work in remote rural villages that lack access to most basic services and are too small to receive assistance from other organizations. In general, communities are formed of subsistence farmers or day laborers who live in extreme poverty, surviving on $35-70/month.

Monderosi Primary School

Tanzania 3,000 beneficiaries

Monderosi Primary School is located near Loliondo, Tanzania. The school serves the Maasai people, who maintain a semi-nomadic lifestyle and rely on their cattle as their source of life. The Maasai are often marginalized in Tanzania and continue to face land rights issues, which continually threaten their traditional way of life. Because they live in the arid lands of northern Tanzania and the amount of land they have access to is dwindling, the Maasai are often unable to find stable sources of water for their families and their cows. During a drought, many cows die from thirst, and the family’s livelihoods are threatened. Without a stable supply of water, girls at Monderosi Primary School miss many hours of school a day as they search for water.

Palabek Refugee Settlement 1

Uganda

Every day, between 2,000 and 4,000 people cross the border from South Sudan to Northern Uganda seeking nothing more than survival. Since the fighting broke out in 2013, more than 1.5 million people have fled South Sudan, making it the world’s fastest growing refugee crisis. More than half of these refugees have resettled in Northern Uganda. Fortunately for them, Uganda has one of the most welcoming refugee policies in the world. Refugees are not just given temporary shelter, they are also provided with land to settle and grow crops.
