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.

Featured Project

Mitalamaria Islamic Primary School

Only in rainy season do children have soap and water to wash their hands. A solution here would be a borehole and gravity fed tap system to reach appropriate places on site; it would serve students and any prayer goers coming to the mosque.
