Give the Gift of Water and Make a Difference
The next time you take a cold drink of water or take a warm shower, stop and remember there are over 1 billion people in this world who have no access to clean or running water. This holiday season help make a difference. Give a friend or loved one the gift of knowing they are making this world a better place in the form of a donation in their name to The Sky is Not Limited.
All of the money raised will go directly toward constructing solar well projects in the East African country of Tanzania in the summer of 2014. These wells, built by The Sky is Not Limited founder Kevin Bailey, will offer a fresh and clean water source for an entire village of people, including schools, who would otherwise not have access to one. Instead of villagers walking great distances to find a water source - which can often be contaminated and unsafe - these wells offer a safe place to gather clean water all while being powered by the sun.
2014 African Clean Water Project
2014 was a productive year for The Sky is Not Limted. Tiffany and Kevin Bailey, founders of The Sky is Not Limited, traveled to Tanzania with African Reflections Foundation CEO, USA, Jean Dobbs. This trip took place over 2 weeks from late July into early August 2014. While in Tanzania, the founders witnessed the building and operation of three new deep solar wells. These wells were located in the Mkuranga district of Tanzania, South of Dar es Salaam.
The first project, which was donated by The Flahive Family Foundation, was installed at the Mdimuni Dispensary. This hospital had no running water or electricity prior to this well's installation. The local representation asked Kevin Bailey to help with the installation of a well at the local secondary school, which also has no running water. The Sky is Not Limited will hope to fund that well in 2015. For the opening of this well, local villagers gathered, sung songs, and offered coconuts to the Bailey's as a thank you for the well project.
The second project was located at the Nyatanga Dispensary. This location was also known for not having any running water. As founders Kevin and Tiffany Bailey drove into the site for the first time, there were small children collecting drinking water from puddles on the side of the road. The opening of this well was brought on by singing and dancing by many local women. Many gifts were presented to representatives of The Sky is Not Limited and African Reflections Foundation by the local people.
The third well project was not completed by the time Kevin and Tiffany returned to the USA. This project was located at Tengelea Secondary School. They will hope to view this well in action when they return to Tanzania in 2015.
