Today’s RecognizeGood spotlight goes to Austin’s own, Africa’s Promise Village and their mission is simple: see bad, do good. Their goal is to provide critically needed clean water, green energy, and education resources to poverty stricken populations in Tanzania.
It was during a trip to Arusha, Tanzania, in 2010, that Dr. Donna Gun, Africa’s Promise Village founder and president, was struck by the devastation she saw and committed herself to making a difference for the people of Tanzania.
They are currently running a project to dig a large well in the Simanjiro. Water wells can make a huge difference for the life and well-being of a village. Providing clean water helps to protect many from disease and illness, support better hygiene, and save those who would otherwise walk for hours in search of water, precious time to invest in other things like education. APV is working to dig a large water well that will serve thousands of Masai in the area. This well will provide clean water for drinking, the operation of a school and crop irrigation.
