Since 2009 Songea’s Kids, an all-volunteer nonprofit has partnered with Tanzania NGOs in southern Tanzania to fund basic needs and education of over 140 orphan children in foster homes in Mshangano Village. Now Songea’s Kids is partnering with Rotary Clubs on Eastside lead by our club to improve the lives of vulnerable children and villagers in Lutukira Village and to build Hope Village. The first priority was two wells drilled in 2016 to provide clean water. The second priorities, now underway, are building the Rotary Health Care Center (structure to be completed by July 2018) to serve 2,800 villagers, and implementing the Rotary Grant -Hope Village Clean Water Project. This project includes drilling two more wells, installing three solar pumps, and laying pipe to gravity feed water to all buildings in Hope Village, beginning with the Rotary Health Care Center.
