Raising money for a small village in Africa

Hi, my name is Ella and I am a junior in high school. I have been fundraising to help build an irrigation system in a small village in Africa since sixth grade. So far, $12,000 has been raised and my goal is to raise $8,000 more by June. Originally the need was $20,000 to provide 5 Acres of land and an irrigation system to ensure continuous agricultural activity for a small village known as the Abayudaya community. Food security is paramount and a number one priority in that part of the world. The village did not have this security and I hope to help ensure it so they can thrive as a village. Due to Covid and other illnesses, the need has become even greater and expanded to the hope of an improved health center. My goal is to raise enough money for both the health center and the start of an irrigation system to help the village become a healthier place to live for all the residents. I will provide updates with monthly progress.
