Wells:

• We have completed 3 wells – in the villages of Kowak, Mkula and Masinki. Water quality is confirmed, and the pumps are hooked up and active. These 3 wells provide water for about 14,000 individuals daily. 

• Due to the overwhelming need for water in the village of Mkula, the Philadelphia-Serengeti Alliance (PSA) worked with villagers to hold a local event to raise funds to repair an additional, pre-existing well to provide water to help offset the demand on the well we constructed.

• To increase cost-effectiveness and make water available sooner and to more people, we have adjusted our focus to include repairs of some of the many wells that already exist but are not functioning properly. The next wells we plan to repair are in the villages of Dett and Chereche.

• The locations of the completed wells are marked on the map below. Click the pins for photos and more information.

 

Fundraising:

• To date, we have raised over $50,000, which has funded our start-up expenses, the first 3 wells, and money towards our next well.

• We are looking to raise approximately $1,000 for each of the next wells that will be repaired and incorporated into the PSA program. Please help by Donating Here.

• Our current fundraising initiatives include our Mount Kilimanjaro Challenge and James Leitner’s Walk 4 Water. These 2 efforts combined have brought in over $14,000 as of July, 2017.   We invite you to be part of PSA’s work to bring clean, safe water to more communities in Tanzania by donating through these links or on our DONATE page!
