What We Do


Since 2005, our work has focused on collaborating with our friends in Gondar, Ethiopia in two specific project areas: Education and Water. Our projects are based on requests of specific needs from our partners and city officials in Gondar.

Water: Supporting Water Resources and Sustainability

Since 2010, constructing wells and developing springs have resulted in 2700 households (an estimated 16,800 individuals) having access to clean water.  To sustain this effort, we are now focusing on assessing these working conditions of these wells and springs for long-term sustainability practices.
