Your donation to Watu Moja not only helps our young people to connect and serve the global community, it also helps to fund some important efforts abroad. These efforts include:
The Maisha Project: Maisha is Swahili for "life." This initiative focuses on improving the health and welfare of Afrikan women - the life givers. Through supporting existing women's health initiatives and through investing in women run micro-enterprises, Watu Moja seeks to assist Afrikan women in building stronger, healthier, and more prosperous lives and families.
Access to Clean Drinking Water: Lack of access to clean drinking water represents a major hurdle in maintaining good health in much of Afrika. Watu Moja will invest in local Afrikan efforts which deliver clean water to households and individuals. In addition to this direct investment, Watu Moja participants will familiarize themselves on the issues of delivery of clean water and will advocate for effective systems regarding this basic human necessity.
The Kenyan Recreation Initiative: Watu Moja really loves kids and seeks improve their lives in every way possible. We also believe in good clean fun. Therefore, we are committed to creating and improving recreation facilities in every nation we visit. This year’s recreation project involves erecting a basketball court in a neighborhood in Nairobi Kenya.
