Clean Water Christmas Wish for Zambia

$950 of $9,700 goal

Raised by 6 people in 52 months
The objective of this campaign is to raise funds in order to expand and continue a Clean Water Project in Lusaka, Zambia.

Sister Cities of Los Angeles Inc. is a private non profit organization established in 1959 to provide support to the City of Los Angeles and its Sister City Communities which now number 25 (with three additional "Friendship Cities"). Our organization is devoted to people to people exchange between LA's City Government and the City Governments of our Sister Cities in an effort to expand travel and trade, provide mutual friendship, and coordinate programs. 

THERE'S A PROBLEM WE CAN HELP SOLVE IN LUSAKA

We have the technology to create water infrastructures at a sophisticated level, worldwide. And, in Zambia, there is water in the ground already. And yet few of the people of Lusaka have access to clean water. 

The objective of this campaign is to raise funds in order to expand and continue the Clean Water Project begun last year which integrates the provision of clean water with other environmental considerations such as water and waste treatment measures, disease reduction (malaria and diarrhea are both tied to morbidity rates), and irrigation systems that are less than sufficient.

Last year, we were able to provide clean water for 20 families (at a cost of $52 per family per year) in the Chaisa compound in Lusaka.  Our success in Chaisa last year was recently detailed in Colleague, a magazine published by Pepperdine University.  A copy of that article can be accessed here.

This year, with your help, we would like to provide an additional 80 families (for a total of 100 families) with buckets, faucets, and clean water for the year.  Our Project Director, Lidia Mongerie Brown, will be traveling to Lusaka in December in order to carry out this project.  Including the cost of materials and the water itself, the project will cost just $9,700.00 to make our Christmas wish come true for the 100 families in Lusaka's Chaisa compound.



Here on GoFundMe, anyone can help: Jet setter, diplomat, concerned citizens and students alike. 

Sister Cities of Los Angeles is pleased to support the LA-Lusaka Sister City Committee's effort to further water access in our sister city Lusaka, Zambia.

This project is led by the Los Angeles-Lusaka Sister City Committee; Dr. Ernestine Robertson (President, LA-LSCC), and Project Director Ms. Lidia Mongerie Brown.
