Funding Needs

We are currently funding one community school & water system project per year with an annual budget of $50,000.  We currently have three high school scholarships underway at the cost of $1,200 each yearly for a total of $3600.   However, We have many more projects in the pipeline and are searching for funding to do more than just one community project per year.
