PHEN-DEY - We continue to collaborate with the wonderful Phen-Dey Foundation in India, with 3 new projects underway. In addition to continuing education funding, we are also supporting a replacement tank for a borehole and a new classroom space for students at the monastery where we dug our first well with Phen-Dey. So much more to come!
POSSIBLE PROJECT IN TOGO, AFRICA - Several months ago our President Susan Hough had a chance encounter with an amazing couple, Peace and Fabian Kodah, who have a connection to the country of Togo in West Africa. There are several villages (Agotime, Tovegan, Agnave, Agbessia, and Xekpe) where water initiatives are needed and we are exploring how we can continue this exciting collaboration. They sent us some images to show us the current water source in one of the villages.
