Here’s tangible results of the impact you make possible. Construction crews in Burundi are hard at work on the Bitoke-Kiriza Extension Water System thanks to your generosity. Read the latest progress update, the trench being dug here will soon bring clean water to 668 students and teachers at Kiriza primary school that’s visible in the background.
We’re happy to share construction progress Bitoke-Kiriza Extension Water System. This project is on time, and on budget. When it’s complete 2,100 residents will have daily access to as much water as they need. Access to water is a solid investment that sparks economic growth.
According to World Health Organization, Every $1 invested in clean water can yield $4–$12 in economic returns. Access to clean water gives communities more time to grow food, earn an income, and go to school and fight poverty.
Your support has made this progress possible. Thank you!
You made it possible! Your generosity inspires us! This week construction of a new water project is set to begin. The scope of work and schematic drawing give the nuts and bolts but not the human impact. Follow along to see the progress from delivery of supplies to digging trenches where PVC pipes will be laid to the faces of the children and families that will be able to turn on a spigot — that’s close to home — and get as much clean water as they want. You made this possible. Thank you!
Austin, Texas - July 2, 2019 - Austin Ear Nose and Throat Clinic are the presenting sponsor of the Water Hero Kids K at the thirteenth annual Run For The Water. A uniquely transformative event, every entry to Run For The Water allows the Gazelle Foundation to provide a person in Burundi with access to clean water – for life. The Water Hero Kids K is a fun way for kids to be active and gain a deeper understanding of water scarcity, consumption, and their role and ability to be engaged, global citizens.
We’ve got exciting news! Thanks to the hardworking National Junior Honor Society students at St. Theresa’s Catholic School in Austin, Texas. They raised over $4,500 to fund clean water. Which means kids in Burundi won’t have to worry about where they will wash their hands, or get a drink of water. St. Theresa’s Catholic School — your generosity inspires us!
