Water Wells Tanzania
With 50 million population, Eastern African state of Tanzania is located between Kenya and Mozambique. General health condition of Tanzanians are poor with excess mortality due to AIDS, high infant mortality and low life expectancy rates.
According to 2012 figures, 47% of the population has no or limited access to clean water resources in Tanzania. Usually people who live close to to lakes or rivers are fortunate, but even Tanzania’s ground water is not always clean as toxic drainage systems leak into and contaminate the ground water in the country.
As a result, many Tanzanians suffer from waterborne diseases including bacterial diarrhea, malaria, hepatitis A and typhoid fever as well as water contact diseases; including schistosomiasis and leptospirosis.
Clean Water Services in Tanzania
In order to respond to current water crisis in Tanzania, our officials paid a field visit to Tanzania in September 2014.
After meeting with the local borehole contractors and a feasibility study jointly undertaken by our local partner; Kamer Trust, our organisation is now offering clean water services in Tanzania by November 2014. Thanks to high demand towards this project, we have established 14 water wells in Tanzania by late July 2016.
Water Well Establishment Procedure in Tanzania
Cost of establishing a water well in Tanzania is $6,000 with an approximate completion time of two months. After receiving your donation, we contact our local partner in Tanzania.
After the preliminary excavation, we install the water pump and place the names of water well sponsors on the establishment.
We provide the well donators a receipt for their donation, as well as an information sheet which pinpoints the well’s location in the country. As the gps position of the well is provided in the info sheet, our well sponsors can always visit their well in Tanzania should they wish.

At present, we have a list of government schools in Tanzania that are in dire need of water.
Due to their depth, our artesian wells supply clean drinking water to locals throughout the year. It is estimated that approximately 500 people benefit from these wells every day.
