Since beginning work in Chuko Weyama in 2011, we have achieved our goal in bringing water to the gracious people of this community! With eight completed water projects and more on the way, we're working hard to ensure that everyone has a local access point for water. We're continuing in 2014 with new education projects. Keep track of our progress below.

New schools create a rich learning environment that equips girls with skills to build a better life. Education improves a girl’s job opportunities, delays marriage and promises a better future for her children. Education is the key to eradicating extreme poverty.
