St Mary's Church’s story

Pumps for Mpwapwa is a project to provide a solar-powered water pump in the village of Msagali, Tanzania, in partnership with the Diocese of Mpwapwa.

Farmers in Tanzania are heavily dependent on unreliable and unpredictable weather conditions. Whilst being considered self-sufficient in staple foods, half the 30 regions of Tanzania have experienced food shortages and insecurity in the last 5-7 years due to extreme weather conditions.

This project, led by the Diocese of Mwpapwa’s Development Department, aims to improve food security, nutrition and the livelihoods of the local community in and around Msagali village, through the provision of a reliable water source.

After a full geological survey, a deep water well will be dug and a solar pump installed, with distribution facilities to allow irrigation for farmers in and around Msagali village. It is expected that 150 families will benefit from better food security and nutrition as a result.

The project will cost £30,000 and we have committed to raise at least £15,000 towards this in 2020. We will work with the Diocese of Mpwapwa to find sources of funding for the remaining £15,000.

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
