for Adorer Missionary Sisters of the Poor
Adorer Missionary Sisters of the Poor, Inc. is a nonprofit organization registered in the state of Florida and operates the orphanage and school in Malowa, Tanzania. Beginning in 2013, the orphanage and preschool opened for 29 children and has since grown to 250 orphan children with more attending every year. January 2016 saw the partially completed secondary school open for 15 teenaged students. We continue to build and expand with every growing class.

We have come so far with the support of our generous donors and we hope you will help us complete our current water project fundraiser with water sourced from the runoff of Mount Kilimanjaro to feed our arid grounds. It will help not only our orphanage and school, but the broader village of nearly 3,000 residents as well. This water will be pumped and transported through 4 miles of pipes to our local water tanks.

We must do this because the water pipe provided by the Ministry of Water is often dry and thereby an inconsistent source. This has a devastating impact on our children, the animals we farm and care for, the staff and community that must all do without water to drink, clean, and cook. Limited water increases the risk of cholera and other life threatening diseases.

We’ve developed a plan with the local engineers, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Water, and the community whereby the total cost of the project is $40,000 and can be completed in 3-4 months once we meet our financial goal. This will cover the cost of two pumps, construction of tanks, piping, and installation.

The impact of having local, reliable, and clean water will be lifechanging to our humble village and school. It will offer self-sufficiency and opportunities to build upon and make investing in all of our futures a sure success. Children can stay hydrated, clean, and healthy from a reliable freshwater source. Our staff can better clean the grounds, classrooms, and clothes. Our kitchen will have water to cook with and offer as drink without contaminants and disease. Our animals can be nourished and our farms flourish with irrigated water.

You will have a life-changing impact on thousands of lives! Please donate today and share it on Facebook !
