"Maji no uhai" – “Water is life.” This Swahili saying captures the heart of the matter for eastern Africa: water is a necessary blessing. St. Peter Claver High School is a boarding school operated by the Jesuits near the capital city of Dodoma, Tanzania. Though the school is thriving and continues to grow, it is located in one of the most arid regions in Tanzania, only receiving about 20 inches of rain in a good year. Not having access to a public water supply, St. Peter Claver High School requires a bore hole (well) to access safe water for the students and faculty who live there throughout the school year. Though there is a large aquifer below its surface, there is presently only one operational bore hole for the entire school. Dependence on only one source of water is too great a risk.

The drilling of the new well will cost about $18,400.00, a cost that cannot be easily borne under the school’s current budget. Our simple mission is to assist the school by supplying the funds to drill this new bore hole. But to reach that goal, we need your help. Please join Aghogho Edevbie and other faithful benefactors of the Jesuits in making a gift to support this project for St. Peter Claver High School.

If you have any questions, please contact Aghogho Edevbie: aghogho.edevbie@gmail.com
