Success story

Now clean water is just down the street
Neema, 12 years old, Sikonge District

How does a water pump help students ?

If there is no safe water nearby, girls often have to walk long distances every day to the nearest well, when they really should be at school.

ECLT installed 26 wells in our projects in Tanzania, ensuring that the whole village has safe water and better sanitation, and giving girls more time for classes.

By helping families earn and save more money, we give them the opportunity to send their children to school, not to work.
