With the nearest hospital two hours away, the people of Pommerini need access to basic healthcare closer to home. The Africa Exchange Project found the Pommerini healthcare clinic lacking in every possible way. There was very few medical supplies or drugs and a just a few beds. As a result, woman in labor are two to a bed. The conditions were also not sanitary.
In this region, student to teacher ratios can be over 100 to 1 and six-to-eight children are asked to share a desk. Therefore, more classrooms, teachers, books and school supplies are needed. In addition, families the cost of school uniforms and tuition prevent many children from attending school at all.
The African Exchange Project has many ongoing educational initiatives.
Help us raise $5,000 to buy 1,000 more books.
In Pommerini, Tanzania, there was no access to safe water. Women and girls would spend most of their day retrieving water. As a result, girls do not have enough time to receive an education, and tragically, the water for which they work so hard carries diseases that can make everyone sick or in the cases of infants or elderly, they can die. Access to clean water means education, income and improved health.
The Africa Exchange Project has installed over 40 wells bringing easy access to fresh water to the village of Pommerini, Tanzania. Conditions have improved markedly due to the access to fresh water. The incidence of disease has dropped, and many more girls are attending school.
Keeping the wells in good repair Is essential. Occasionally they can become plugged up with sand and debris. Donations allows us to flush the wells and keep the water flowing.
