The Difference You've Made

Thanks to your support this Earth Month, thousands living in Belavabary, Madagascar now have access to clean, drinkable water – many for the first time ever!
Having this access means children can spend more time in school and mothers can spend more time at home with their families.

This team of workers are en route to the project site, where they'll dig kilometres of trenches to lay the pipes that will provide access to clean, drinkable water.
