Iyoli Water Project
Iyoli Village in Tanzania is in need of a clean water supply. The Iyoli Water Project and Innovation: Africa (Visit website) have teamed up to dig a well in this small village. Innovation: Africa is a nonprofit on a mission to bring innovative solar and water technologies to remote African villages. They have provided one million people across Africa with access to vaccines, light and water and we are so pleased to be partnering together on this project.
In March of 2016 I went to Iyoli primary school in Tanzania with a projector and generator to show the Iyoli storytelling club Strathcona media creations and help create the Iyoli content as part of the international exchange. We walked with the kids to collect water which opened our eyes to the severity of their water situation.
This story is evolving.
July of 2017 I will head to Tanzania to watch and document the water well, funded by Innovation: Africa, as it is being built in addition to sending a live video feed to the Strathcona school classroom so that they can watch the well being built in realtime.
