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

Lwabyata Secondary School

These high school students are very lucky to have progressed past primary school testing to senior school. They spend close to $1000 each year to fill the rain tanks with water from a truck so girls can wash, cook and everyone can stay clean.
