2021 Serengeti Tour

2021 Serengeti Tour

Ven. John Merlini Students Explore the Natural Landscapes of the Serengeti


In June of 2021, the Form III students of John Merlini embarked on an annual school trip to the Serengeti to visit the National Park Reserves in Tanzania. 

As part of the extra-curricular activities offered at our secondary school, we feel it is important for students to have a comprehensive learning experience, which also includes an educational trip.

Apart from studying about biodiversity in Biology, this trip serves as an extension of learning that involves the senses, providing an opportunity for students to expand their minds and experiences beyond academia. It allows them to tangibly learn about the natural environments they are surrounded by and the importance of local conservation of these natural habitats and the wildlife that live within them.

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 


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.

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!

#EducationForGirls2021 Campaign

#EducationForGirls2021 Campaign

Why Education for Girls?

In Tanzania, especially in rural areas, girls spend on average between 3-6 hours per day on household work, such as cooking, cleaning, fetching water, collecting firewood, caring for children, the sick and elderly. Comparing with their counterparts, boys spend only 30 minutes to 2 hours on such tasks. In fact, from the time girls are born, they are seen within reproductive roles – childbearing, childcare and house chores. Even more heartbreaking is the fact that 2 out of 5 girls in Tanzania are married before they turn 18. This inevitably leads to early pregnancies and the reality of dropping out of school. The price is huge for girls in these situations, subjected to living with their untapped potential and talents never able to see the light of day.

Why is this Important?

For Tanzania to develop and function at its potential, women’s skills and talents should be engaged in activities that make the best use of those abilities. At C.PP.S. Mission Projects we believe authentic development is not separate from the foundations of freedom and equality. Following this view, we see development as a process of expanding freedoms equally for all people, closing the gaps in well-being between girls and boys. We also believe, anchoring gender equality in socio-economic norms change will require bottom-up, as well as top-down, approaches involving all of us. More importantly, girls themselves are also critical agents of change and should not be seen solely as “victims”. Empowering them with information on their rights, skills and ensuring that education structures enable them to claim their rights is the way that leads to authentic freedom.

What is Our Vision and Goal?

C.PP.S. Mission Projects’ top priority for 2021 is investing in girls by running this Education for Girls campaign and raising $100,000 over the next twelve months, so that they have the opportunity to find their sense of empowerment, attain literacy and have a safe environment through our education programs in Tanzania. The funds will provide full scholarships to 88 girls at St. Gaspar Primary School and 46 girls at Venerable John Merlini Secondary School for the duration of one year.

What Can You Do?

Investing and educating girls is one of the best gifts we can give to Tanzania, for today and for its long-term sustainable development. To empower girls in Tanzania, we need your partnership!

Your support of $65/month for 12 months (or $450 per year) will provide a girl with one year of  education at St. Gaspar Primary school


Your support of $110/month for 12 months (or $1300 per year) for a girl at Venerable John Merlini Secondary School


Any amount of support you can provide is much needed and highly appreciated in our initiative to help end child marriages, child labour and sexual exploitation through education.

Together we will work tirelessly to provide quality education and a safe environment for girls.
The world may be full of darkness but You can Be a bridge of Hope in a girls’ life.
Please, donate today.
