Event details

Bringing clean water to Kigoma, Tanzania

Many villages in rural Tanzania lack access to clean water meaning villagers are forced carry water very long distances, wasting hours every day.  Sometimes they also have to drink from muddy ponds shared with animals, leading to multiple health problems, particularly for children.

Tanzania Development Trust's local rep in Kigoma, Benedicto Hosea and his team, has successfully hand drilled over 15 boreholes and constructed simple rope pumps that can easily be repaired by the villagers. This is very important as it is estimated that up to 50% of water pumps in Tanzania are not functioning at any one time mainly due a lack of spares or local expertise.
