Moshi District is one of the six administrative districts in Kilimanjaro Region. It is situated between longitude 37º to 38º east and latitude
2º – 30’-50º south of the Equator. On the North the district borders Rombo district, on the East is borders Kenya, on the South it. Borders Mwanga
and Simanjiro Districts and on the Western side it borders Hai District.

The District covers an area of 1,713 Sq. Km or 171,300 Ha of which 124254 Ha is arable land, 38126 ha. Is land covered by Natural forests and
8920 Ha. Is non Arable occupied by rocks, hills and gullies

The district has two main economic activities and these are:
* Agriculture

According to the 2002 population census 88% of the residents are involved in agricultural activities, which included banana production, paddy
production coffee production livestock keeping, and horticultural production. With a total of 108,389 Ha under cultivation Kilimanjaro Mountain which
is known all over the world and attracts a lot of tourist all over the world is in Moshi district. The peace prevailing within its people make possible to
move from one area to another without fear, seven major rivers flowing from the mountain making traditional irrigation possible through more than
300 furrows.

Sinja - Kilimanjaro District

The region of Sinja - Kilimanjaro District in Northern Tanzania is an area with a radius of approx. 35 km in which approx. 10.000 people
live. The Massai population with their animals are currently dependent on one single broken well. As also inhabitants from other villages
come to get their water from this well, particularly in the dry season conflicts arise between the single Massai tribes.

But also the wild animals, in this case the elephants from the adjoining national parks are driven into the villages as they also need water 
to survive. In search of water they destroy the existing wells. In this circumstance the possibility for conflict arises between animals and

Women and children from the region have in their need started to dig for water and take the water from a water hole with dirty water.

In January 2014 the LNW team made their way to Sinja - Kilimanjaro District and visited several villages with huge drinking water shortages. 
Particularly the inhabitants of the Massai villages near the border are at a disadvantage and have to suffer from the lack of drinking water.

In the next two years with the help of well sponsors the LNW team plans to carry out and restructure two existing wells and to build two 
further wells with solar pumps for the people.

In addition, approximately 5 km away a well i.e. a water hole will be built for the elephants, so that, also they have access to water and don`t  
have to go  into the villages anymore to look for water.

Sinja - Well 1

The first well project will be implemented directly in the centre of the village and be built for the villagers as well as for the school children 
from the adjoining school. At this well location a drinking water tap facility will provide access to drinking water for at least 500 people.



Sinja - Well 2

Here in Sinja we have a broken well with a hand pump which was almost completed destroyed by the elephants. With the help of LNW a 
solar pump will be installed to supply drinking water.  The overflow pipe with the excess water will be piped to the water troughs and the 
surplus water will be used for the irrigation of the pastures.



Sinja - Well 3 & 4

The multiple well systems were built more than 80 years ago in the German colonial era and are currently not working. The LNW team plans
to measure the  water capacity in these wells by means of a pumping test and to install new solar pumps in the wells with a sufficient water 
supply.  The concrete drinking water reservoirs will be rebuilt, so that they can be reused as water troughs for the animals. 

Monduli - District

In the September 2014 the LNW team travelled to Tanzania again, visiting several villages with huge drinking water shortages which urgently need our help. Primarily in northern Tanzania the inhabitants in the Maasai villages with their animals are at a disadvantage  - Monduli District which especially in times of drought is adversely affected due to the tropical conditions.

Approximately one million people and many animals live in the region of Mihungani - Northern Tanzania. They all obtain their water from
one single water hole. The Massai men drive the tractor to collect the dirty water and bring it inland to the individual Massai villages in the 
Arusha District - Northern Tanzania. Should there be no rain in the dry season between November and March, then like every year the
people and animals have a drought. In this area during the next three years LNW would like to build 50 wells thus creating access to vital drinking water for about 1.000.000 people.

For the realisation of these wells in the Monduli District we are dependent on the help of our LNW sponsors who might like to take on a well 
sponsorship with us. Help us! Every drop counts...


Along the main road in the direction of Singhida lies the village of Mihungani  in the Monduli District region - Northern Tanzania.  The 
approximately 5.000 people who live here must take the water for their daily requirements from the water holes in the mountains in the
form of rainwater.

Besides the general contamination from the soil and insects, the water is completely unsuitable as drinking water.

In the zone of Mihungani which is sprawled out over an area with a radius of approx. 30 km a partner organisation has already begun with
the construction of a school. For the villagers and the future students a drinking water well is urgently needed to give the people access to
drinking water.

As there is very little ecological cultivation in the area, the LNW team is plannning to launch their project "Every Child a Tree" for the people
and students. To successfully implement this, firstly a well system together with a water trough for the animals and an irrigation system will
be built for the agricultural project.

The LNW team is glad that it could acquire the sponsor Caffe Latte - VIENNA for the construction of the well system. By holding a special
water glass promotion they have already donated a considerable sum of money to the project.

We would like to thank all the Caffe Latte customers for their donations and their support! Thank you...


In the region Loiborsoit, the village Ormoto is situated in the south, roughly 3 hrs drive along the main road in the direction of the Serengeti
National Park. Nearly 5,000 people live there, who for their daily requirements must take water from the water holes as well as rainwater
from the puddles.

In the centre of Ormoto a school will be built which to begin with, will require a drinking water well with an animal water trough and an
irrigation system.

In January 2014 Renate Pyrker & Dietmar Grünwald of LNW personally visited the area and were themselves convinced of the drinking water
adversity. To support the financing of the project, as organisers they launched the fund raising event "Wels for Africa". In 2014 for LNW the net 
proceeds raised at several events were all used for well construction.

The whole LNW team kindly thanks all participants of "Wels for Africa" for their support:

* Special thanks to the Major of Wels  Dr. Peter Koits

* The Wels trade fair management for the free exhibition stand

* Thanks to the artists Krobath & Pickering for the brilliant Africa picture

* Students of the fashion school Ebensee for the great fashion show

* Special thanks also go to the students of the Brucknergymnasium for their  costume jewellery donation

The project "Clean Drinking Water for Ormoto" will be the showcase for Wels which as partner town has taken over the well sponsorship.
Thanks to the support of all participants it will be possible for us from LNW to give the people the access to "water-education-work".

Kamerun - Kongni (Bassessa) -

Department Menoua Cameroon West

Management: Paul Kana sen.

Water situation: Currently in the region there is no well in existence for the retrieval of ground water. The inhabitants get the water from the
river and collect the rainwater. As the water quality cannot be examined, they are consistently confronted with illnesses and highly infectious 
diseases e.g. cholera.

In Cameroon 70% of the children under five die due to the consumption of contaminated drinking water.

The district in which the project will be implemented is called Bassessa. There a well will be built with which the village hospital, the village
school as well as the private houses will have access to clean drinking water

The Knorr Bremse Foundation have through their well sponsorship with LNW committed themselves to help, thus enabling the poorest in
the region to have access to clean drinking water.

Kamerun - Mfou D'Abembe Department

Management: Hubert Belinga

Location/water situation: The villages around D'Abembe are situated about  2 hours drive south of the capital Yaounde in a very remote
area. In some villages there is drinking water from drinking water wells with hand pumps and again others only dispose of dirty water
from the nearby river.

From this standpipe the school children fetch the drinking water and bring it in a canister to school. Within a radius of 15 km for many
villagers this water point is the only one. Besides the catastrophic drinking water situation we from LNW also had to discover that the
sanitary facilities consisted merely of a hole in the ground and that the schools were also in ruins. The storm had destroyed a large part
of the roofs, so that many children could only remain in the wrecked classes.

The LNW team examined the water situation in the area concerned and intends to install wells for drinking water and include it in their
LNW well building programme.

In November 2014 our well experts will travel to this area and they will begin with the project works.
