World Water Day 2021: Drill Campaign

Valuing Water
Water Month Awareness Theme for 2021 and prompts us to reflect on the question:
“What does water mean to me?” Join the larger conversation on social media using #Water2Me #UN #WWD2021 .

“Water is Not a Luxury”
It is easy to take pipes, tanks, and treatment systems for granted and forget how water services protect public health. Reliable affordable water services are crucial to a safe, functioning society. Water is a precious commodity we take for granted. Hot and cold water is a luxury that many parts of the world still do not have. We just turn the faucet. Are we grateful for this instant access to water?

As citizens of a developed country such as Canada, and as global citizens in the large scheme of things, it is our responsibility to solve this problem, one village, one region and one project at a time.

Our Impact
In the past 44 years, we have drilled over 701 wells in various regions of Tanzania. Today, more than 95% of the wells built by the charity are still operating and in good working order. They continue to provide hundreds of thousands with all the health, hope and opportunity access to clean and safe water brings. Many villages and communities have been transformed by the support donors have generously given throughout the years and many more are still in need of clean water.

The Reality

Traditionally, women and children are subjected to making several trips to fetch water at the nearest unsafe ground water source and typically spend 4-5 hours doing so. Regarding preventable water-related deaths, the majority are of children under the age of 5. In light of such devastating realities, we very much want to maintain our mission of being able to provide access to clean, safe water for hundreds of thousands, if not millions of, more people throughout Tanzania for another 30+ years to come. It is a basic human right and it means less water-borne related deaths of children and adults. It allows women and girls to invest more of their time in furthering their education, generating income and spending quality time with friends and family. Basic access to clean safe water is crucial to unlocking the possibilities that life has to offer, because it is a major element in sustaining life.

What Does the Compressor Do and Why is it Important?

Drilling is both demanding and challenging for our aging equipment. To drill water, the compressor should meet the critical requirements of high-speed, reliable performance and be economical in drilling operations. The drill compressor is used to drill boreholes/wells, flush wells, and remove any dirty materials from the well. An ELIGi make has two stage air compressors to develop 1100cfm/300 psi and is coupled with a Cummins engine and air connecting hose (20 mtrs) which will prove to be a good choice in meeting these demands. With faster drilling, it ensures higher productivity at lower frilling cost-per-foot.

Campaign Objective 

Objective:

To provide our Water Project in Dodoma, Tanzania with a new Drilling Compressor to continue providing local communities and other regions with access to safe, drinkable water for an additional 30+ years.

Goal:
To raise $80,000 USD to purchase the compressor sold by PRD RIGS TANZANIA LIMITED.

New Year Greetings for 2021!

What a year 2020 has been!

In the past year, so much has changed in our society, in the way we live, as well as how we operate. We have been wounded, but not conquered. In fact, COVID-19 has strengthened human solidarity. It has made us rise above ourselves and acknowledge one another as brothers and sisters. 

It is in this spirit, we have gone out of our way to care for the needs of the poor and vulnerable. For once, we had an excuse to say no to their cry for help, but we willingly passed on that opportunity.

At C.PP.S. Mission Projects, we have witnessed your love and kindness. All of our small victories and larger successes were only possible because of YOU – our loyal and gracious supporters. So, thank you for your generosity in all its’ forms and we pray you continue to support us in the new year ahead!

May 2021 bring the winds of change for the betterment of all. We pray you have a year filled with more joy, love, peace, health & happiness ~ Happy New Year!

Tanzania Independence Day

Tanzania Independence Day

This year on December 9, 2020 Tanzania celebrates its’ 58th year of Independence.

The day is typically celebrated nation wide with speeches, parades and flag celebrations.  However, due to COVID this year, President John Magufuli of Tanzania, has decided to cancel all Independence celebrations and is redirecting the celebratory funds to purchase much needed hospital equipment for the newly built Uhuru Hospital located in the commercial area of Dar es Salaam.  Additionally, he has encouraged all citizens to partake in cleaning their respective communities in lieu of the current pandemic restrictions.

Prior to 1961, Tanzania was colonized under the rule of Britain and was called Tanganyika. December 9 marks the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain (1961) which then became Republic a year later, in 1962.

It wasn’t until the after the revolution of Zanzibar in 1963, did Zanzibar and (then) Tanganyika unite together, renaming the country, to what is now known today as, Tanzania.
