What Makes us Different?

We connect with and invest in people. Sustainable–clean- water for everyone can only be possible if we begin with a focus on the individual. At DLDT, we believe that we should take care of the water resources we have and share with those who don’t. We care about human connection and sustainability through all of our programming. We dig deep not only for water in Africa, but with people.

Two latrines need to be constructed as soon as possible. The cost is $13,500. Please donate using the DONATE button and note FEATURED PROJECT. Learn more about this school on our projects page!
