Community project in Senegal
Or aim is to improve the living standards of people living in some of the poorest regions of the world. We strive to achieve this by providing and improving the basics required for daily living, such as education, food, water, sanitation, shelter and clothing.

That may mean rebuilding and repairing a school house, improving toilet facilities, or providing a clean water supply to remote villages that have never before had clean running water. It may also involve delivering donated medical and educational supplies to these communities.

Following an initial visit to Basra and the Marsh Lands of southern Iraq in January we are now well underway with our series of projects for 2011 and would really appreciate any and all financial donations.

If you are interested in helping with our work, then please view our current projects to see if there is anything that you might wish to get involved in. Help make a difference, it could change your life!

Project Twenty-Ten

Project 2010 has been focusing on the town of Ndiaoudoune which lies just north of Saint Louis in north-west Senegal, by the border with Mauritania. It is approximately 4 hours drive from Dakar.

The principal aim of the project was to supply the main town of Ndiaoudoune as well as the smaller nearby villages with access to clean water. The women and children had to walk a considerable distance every day to collect it. Rather than undertake this lengthy daily walk some people still chose to drink the heavily polluted river water nearby. By installing stand pipes and water towers we provided the schools, mosque and general community with access to clean water.

Project 2010 was a tremendous success and delivered all of its objectives on time and within budget. Phase 2 took place from December 2010 and ran into January 2011. This saw the laying of additional sub terranean water pipes and the erection of several new standpipes in the communities of Mbailer and Tode.
