Projects Text
Before we began our work in Burbax in 2009, the community was overrun with disease due to contaminated water. Since then, we have helped improve the lives of more than 5,000 villagers with water, education, and health projects. In 2014, we're building on our progress with additional schools and wells. Keep track of our projects below.
