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

Bukompe Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Settlement (Sanitation)

In Kyakatebee, people who were living in the forests for many years were displaced as a new forestry company took over the forested land that was home. After displacing many different groups of people from forests, an attempt to help with resettlement occurred, but people were left with broken water projects and zero sanitation.
