About this Project
After losing a child to cholera, Mlenga Village came together to plan and partially finance a deep well project that will provide clean water to 90 families. Mlenga has contributed construction materials and over $400 of its own money -- a HUGE sum for people living on less than two dollars a day. Mlenga researched and selected a well drilling company that will complete the project for $7,000, about three thousand dollars less than the market price for such projects. The drilling company applied the discount because Mlenga is organizing the project for itself, not relying on an outside organization. Mlenga needs about $6,500, and, once we raise the money, the company will complete the project (takes about two days) and you will receive live mobile updates of impact showing you exactly how your money was spent to help a village get clean water.
