safe water 

Family wells


Almost half of the households in Tanzania don’t have access to safe water. Four out of ten households must travel an hour or more just to collect water. 

In parts of the Moshi Diocese, safe water can be reached by wells less than 50 feet deep. Local teams and KMHO volunteers, using technology and materials developed by Water For All International, will work alongside families to provide a safe water supply.  The methods used, depending on the locale, include either retrofitting an open water hole with a hand pump and permanent sealed cover or forming a well club of five families and training them to drill their own new wells. 

Over 70 wells have been completed since September of 2021.

Will you help?

Please donate towards a Family well.

The average cost for a well is about $300, more than the monthly income of many families. Please consider partnering with a Tanzanian family to create a safe well. Your $200 sponsorship, in addition to the family’s contribution, will pay for pump supplies and technical labor.

Heartwarming success stories

We don’t always know the extent to which a well with a simple plastic hand pump can impact a family or community in Tanzania. But sometimes such compelling stories emerge from interviews with well owners that we want to share them with you.
