As you can see in the tagline above, our sights are set on Africa and beyond.  Up until this point, the efforts have been focused primarily in Edo State, Nigeria.

Edo is in south central Nigeria, its capital Benin City.  Its 3.5 million inhabitants speak numerous languages and come from numerous tribes, but have one common physical need – clean, sustainable water.  Part of the problem is the long dry season this region experiences each year.  Add to that a water table that is often 300 feet or more below the surface, and you have major problems – thirst, hygeine, parasites and diseases from unclean surface water, etc.

Now a handful of villagers no longer have to overcome those issues.  We hope the number increases soon!
