Water & Health Campaign
The program intends to improve health at
household level in Lukwambe. Many families
are drinking water directly from the river
untreated, thus spreading diseases such as:
worms, typhoid, amoebic dysentery , cholera,
etc. We intend to increase awareness on
general public health and reduce transmittable diseases in the area.
Update Happy Bricks School in Lukwambe
Our brand new school has already opened its doors! It is run by Mbago Kizega and we
have now around 100 children enrolled. Alongside the normal curriculum our school is
keen to spread awareness and teach more about nature's conservation. One of our first
projects will be to teach kids how to plant trees and why they are so important for our
livelihood. Check out the video Cut a Tree, Plant Many Trees to find out more.
However there is more to be done! We need helping hands and expertise to help us out
bringing the water from the river to our school, so bathrooms and the kitchen can be fully
functional.... we are still missing around 500 m of water pipes! Please do contact us if
you are interested to help us out.
Gabriele and Felipe are a traveling
team from Brazil visiting African
and Asian countries looking for
people who are “change makers”
who work to effectively improve
the life of others. Their major
objective is to become more
conscious people and develop
essential capabilities in favor of social transformation.

With the help of our volunteers we now have a fish pond.
The purpose of this project is to create a model to teach
and be adopted by rural people at the household level
which would increase income, improve nutrition while
considering environment impact.
The pond is surrounded with trees for shade and creeping grass to feed the fish.

WIDOWS credit scheme
10 March 2012
New funds have been generated through the sale of livestock and seedlings from tree
nurseries. From these funds the Widows Credit Scheme was created and its loans revolve
among the widows themselves with a loans' capacity up to TZS 40,000. They use the
money in their small businesses such as buying and selling vegetables and fruits and to
cook and sell food in the market. Previously, they were getting such credits from micro
credit institutions with long and hectic conditions and procedures.

A new partnership has been created between Ngeriv
and Glenergy, a Canadian company
offering sustainable energy alternatives. From
their commitment to World development, a new project has emerged aiming to be
implemented throughout all Tanzania. While it facilitates the creation of solar
entrepreneurs it brings a new alternative to the energy problems in the rural environment.
Through a micro credit scheme, solar panels and LED lamps will be provided at an
accessible price. The presence of solar power in our village, has the potential of
considerably reduce the consumption of kerosene and improve the livelihoods of the
villagers, regarding their general health and the reduction of costs on energetic
consumption. For more information, please visit www.glenergy.ca .
