Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We are working to address the water crises issues in Kenya, and by extension or as we grow, other countries in Africa. That is our main aim, and our focus is on public institutions like primary schools or a community center, something public and not private. It is also worth noting that we have two other core programs, support for Education and Sanitary Health. We therefore attend to the peoples needs as we review them, and the requirement is to meet the thresh-holds

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

-We aim to provide clean water for dry remote regions
-Initiate sustainable volunteering concepts to communities so they can take ownership of initiated programs
-help girls with education needs who cannot afford
-sustain medical missions, but overall goal of establishing special medical clinic run on volunteering
-initiate and educate poor regions communities on creating sustainable enterprises which will improve economy - example.. gardening, greenhouses, chicken farming etc
-teach them best uses of water besides drinking and basic household usage
-help stop human trafficking to large cities
-create partners in this efforts

-Volunteers to cut down on overheads
-partnering to avoid re-inventing the wheals
-engaging the communities receiving help to take ownership of projects and programs
-team communications and training
-open to ideas and critics of all kinds

-Will power of our committed and able members. We are driven by volunteerism, including the President who have put in loads of hours and other resources to this cause he dearly and passionately believes in.
-fundraising for this projects example 6K race in 2013, Yearly Proud of My Culture event at Broughton High School, Heart for Art for Water Paiting event at the Knights of Columbus in Raleigh 2017, 5K Fun Run fun Walk for water - Lake Lynn - Raleigh 2017. Currently Planning a Gala Dinner - Black Tie Affair at Knights of Columbus. So with this kind of events, we depend on community good will and the stewardship of the organizations leadership and vision to see great impacts to the needy communities.
-strategic organization and communication, diverse members to the organization with great ideas, our members are both hear and also on the ground
-partnering with churches and other like minded organizations and willing businesses in support of our cause
-open leadership and communication
- Instant applications and implementations of the projects we care about and target to accomplish.

we have accomplished a one water project, 16 cow project for a group of 16 widowed women - (sick and with children's), bible drive to families through a church outside Nairobi Kenya,

At Ilbissil primary school, we have donated a 10,000 litter tank to help harvest the water from rooftops. We have held a 2 kilometer walk (February 2014) at the school, Isaac and the MoGH team in Kenya organized that when Isaac vised on a mission trip with the organizations (self funded). The walk helped in getting the school connected with the municipal water from the small town. The main goal is to raise enough money and dig a borehole. Cost stands around 20 thousands USD, a huge amount. We completed a hydrogeology survey which was funded by the Sacred Heart Cathedral, helped to determine underground has water, and the ministry of water with Kenya government helped to approve the project to be valid if carried forward. This project is not yet complete, we need funds to do it. We have done medical mission, we have helped street children get back to school, we have helped hire a teach for them in Eldoret - Kenya, we have helped street kids in Nyeri get help through partnering with a local organization in Nyeri, we have donated goats for milk provision to kids with HIV and AIDs to help counter retroviral medications. We have supported a high school student with her edu000 students, medical cation, comes from a very poor family, the only hope the family have being the first born. We have donated bibles to a church, more than 400 people benefiting. We have donated a water tank to Nyangeri Salvation Army in Embu, more than 300 people getting help, reducing issues with sicknesses and kids missing school or spending money to go see a doctor etc etc.

Long term goals is to have a blue print sustainable center where many operations will be done for the community as an overhaul example of providing to the community in all this basic things. the progress will be to duplicate that to many other regions. We believe in this so much, we know it will come to pass and we invite well wishers to support us.
