PARTNERSHIP WITH JIRANI MWENA(Good Neighbor)

Since 2009, USA child sponsors and education donors have provided funds to meet the basic education needs of 140 orphans in foster homes. A US donor provided funds for the first clean water well in the village. The children are healthy and thriving, and are supported in school as long as they work hard and are working toward gaining skills to support themselves. A record number attend secondary school, vocational school and even higher education. JM has also established a successful self-sustaining chicken project that has improved the nutrition of the children and the sale of excess eggs increasingly provides income to pay education expenses for the students. They are now establishing a Women’s Tailoring Coop to provide jobs and income. Within 10 years, JM is on a track to be totally self-supporting.

Mshangano Well

A well was drilled in 2010 to provide clean water for the orphans and people of Mshangano Village. Thanks to a grant from Living Water to Songea's Kids and to technical expertise provided by Engineers Without Borders and on-site assistance from Russ Prior the new well provides clean water to prevent water-related diseases.
