Mains’l Mission Team members are made up of employees who have committed to sharing their gifts, skills and talents with others through our work in Africa. For the past nine years, the Mission Team has been working, playing and building relationships with those we meet while in Zimbabwe. Collaborating with our on-the ground partner, Mother Africa Trust, our work has included supporting an orphanage, an old age home, building a new school, numerous projects in rural villages, and conservation efforts. 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of Mains’l mission trips. Unfortunately, the scheduled May trip was postponed due to COVID 19. But that’s not stopping us! There is a critical need in Zimbabwe right now, and we are continuing our mission efforts from a distance. And we need your help! No matter where we are, we embody the Mains’l Mission, Vision and Core Values, both in our communities and throughout the world. Vision: A world where people live with meaning and purpose. Mission: Offering innovative supports to people, responding to their hopes and dreams. Core Values: We believe in honesty and truthfulness; We believe in serving others. We believe all people make meaningful contributions, and every person is valuable. We believe in collaboration and partnerships. We believe in excellence.
Environmental education is a core value at AFSA High School. We strive to connect students to both their environment and their community. Being an H2O for Life school is one of the ways we make meaningful learning opportunities available to students and work toward our school's mission. Our school's NHS Chapter is leading our fundraising and awareness efforts. Last year we helped build a well in Uganda. This year we hope to get more of the school involved in this important project through monthly hat days, selling H2O for life t-shirts, and other fun events. We are excited to make a difference!

Students will work together to host a lemonade stand and walk for water to support public awareness and fundraising efforts.
Brand g Vacations is a tour operator specializing in LGBT travel. My husband Troy and had the privilege to travel to Tanzania as part of a familiarization trip to determine if it would be a good fit for a Brand g Vacations tour. We were not only impressed with the country as a destination, but were also so impressed by the warmth and hospitality of the Maasai people we met. We were also incredibly moved by the stories of hardship these communities face, including the lack of easily accessible clean drinking water. I remembered having met Patty Hall from H2O for Life and wondered if they could help. I was able to introduce Engaruka to H2O and thus the start of this fundraising effort.
