Orphans Foundation Fund Video

This video was made awhile ago and gives a brief overview of the mission of Orphans Foundation Fund and projects we engage ourselves with here in Tanzania.

Some updates to note are the water found at Kikatiti turned out to be seasonal, so we are again looking for either a constant potable source or to purchase another plot of land for the project. The rehabilitation of the old USAID water system is now our hope for Lengast village, but it will be costly to repair and maintain. There are so many needs here in Tanzania, so if you can donate to help these people you would literally be saving lives! If you are in the US or Canada please contact Dr. James Lace, or if you are in Tanzania contact Gosberth Baitwa.

USAID Lengast Water system update

USAID and the USAF with Orphans Foundation Fund at the Water system for Lengast Masai Village USAID and the USAF with Orphans Foundation Fund at the Water system for Lengast Masai Village USAID and the USAF with Orphans Foundation Fund at the Water system for Lengast Masai Village

Several years ago USAID installed a water system for Lengast Masai Village, although it has been helping the people, the system now isn’t producing enough water for the community. A combined task force was formed to address the problems, lead by Lt. Col James B Williams of the United States Air Force. Orphans Foundation Fund along with the members of the task force and community leaders went to the bore hole, water tanks, pipelines and distribution points in and around Lengast to see how the system may be improved to yield more water to sustain the village. The continued support of donors and development groups is much appreciated by Lengast Village.
