Here at Global Angels we have had many years of success in affecting change in villages and communities throughout the world. Across Africa & Asia we have built schools, medical clinics and community centres. We have dug wells, drilled boreholes and built a water purification plant. We have empowered, educated and inspired.
It is through the help of all our wonderful Angels that we have been able to do so. Over the last few months we have been gearing up in preparation for lots of brand new initiatives aimed at bringing empowerment and providing basic human rights to the disadvantaged all over the world.
This is our first newsletter in a while and here I will recap some of what we have recently achieved to update you. We will be sending our newsletter out once a month giving you lots of opportunities to support us with monetary donations or with in kind support, to join us in fundraising initiatives or on a volunteer trip to work on one of our projects – each initiative giving communities the greatest gift of all – the tools they need to transform their lives giving them HOPE
In June this year we were working in Tsavo, Kenya, one of our long term ‘Community Transformation’ projects. On our first trip in 2012, we found the women of Tsavo were struggling to provide clean drinking water for their families. Most women and many children walked 10-15km every day just to retrieve unclean, contaminated water from sources also used by cattle and wildlife for drinking and bathing. We were horrified seeing first hand the daily struggle for survival these precious women faced and our hearts went out to them. We decided to do whatever we could to help this community get easier access to safe drinking water and support them and their children in their journey out of extreme poverty.
In 2014 we turned on the taps for the first time giving the first community safe drinking water. We launched an emergency school feeding programme as most children were malnourished. In 2015 we began building a new community resource centre. This year we have opened the first water kiosk where thousands more have access to drinking water. They now have drinking water but need water for cooking, cleaning, washing, for their animals and agriculture. So many women still make the 10-15km trip for water. We are continuing to work on new solutions. We are helping new business’s being launched along with IT training in the centre. As we develop the model of empowering a whole community here we can roll it out to the wider community and to other countries.
Below you will find some pictures of the transformation we have been bringing to Tsavo working closely with our local partner, Camps International.
With your continued support we will carry on empowering this community by equipping them with the resources they need to thrive in the following areas: Water, Health, Education, Empowerment and Sustainability.
I would like to encourage you to consider making the Tsavo Project a community you are passionate to support. It’s one of a few projects you can actually come with me on a volunteer trip and perfect for choosing a specific resource to fundraise for in your company, as a group or individually – as a marathon runner for example.
In Kenya, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Mozambique Global Angels is now supplying safe drinking water to over 160,000 people, medical care to a further 170,000 people through medical clinics we have built and which are continuing to operate. We have also supplied over 2 million meals through our school feeding programme and much more.
Just £20 will provide one more person in Tsavo with access to safe drinking water for 10 years
