Mtinko Well Project

For a weekly blog and other information on my trip and the Mitiko Well Project.

My goal is to raise the needed funds to support the Mtinko Well Project as I hike the 2,200 mile Appalachian Trail.

General information about the well: 

The well project began a few years ago with the goal to provide clean and reliable drinking water to Mtinko Village. Mtinko Village is a remote community in Tanzania, Africa located near the Serengeti National Park. The well is critical to the survival of the local village. The well was built with the help of Bethany Lutheran Church. To keep the well working, they need our help.

Currently, the village uses a generator to operate the well. This is only a temporary fix to continue to provide water. They need your support to run an electrical line from the Mtinko village to the well.

The village also needs a healthy means of storing water. The plan is to provide two brick-masonry water storage tanks. 

Any amount is welcome, but suggested levels of Sponsorship are below:​
