In October 2010, the Foundation finished its second water project in Burundi. In close proximity to where our first water system was built in Songa, this project covers 1.4 kilometers (almost one mile) and provide for over 900 residents in the area. Featuring six different tap stands for the Nyamwango villagers, it will be their first time to ever have direct access to clean water for drinking, showering, cooking, and other day to day needs. The people of Nyamwango are referred to as Pygmes (or Batwa), the poorest of the three Burundian tribes which remains as one of the poorest countries in the world. Below are a few pictures of our new friends as well as recent updates on the project.
We would like to extend a special appreciation to the students and faculty of St. Andrew’s Episcopal School, who funded this project through their efforts of raising funds during the 2008-2009 school year!
