Angelic Connections Village Water Project

Wildcat Water Project

Marci Houseman, the director of Choral Music, Theatre Arts, and D.R.U.M. at West Pine Middle School in West End, NC., has set up a Donor Managed Fund here at Africa Heartwood Project.

Seth Okai Village Water Project

The Village of Seth Okai
Sethokai is a village in the Central Region, in the Kwanyaku district. This community had two semi-functional hand dug wells which were not sufficient to serve the needs of the people who relied on them. While the water was clean enough, it dried up for about 4 months of the year, leaving residents to fetch water by hand from a long distance. It was less expensive and more effective to drill a new bore hole rather than attempt to deepen the hand dug wells, seal them off, and install a hand pump. Sethokai saved […]
