Q1 2019 Update!


Hi Everyone! We are off and running in the new year, Happy 2019! We have reached over 3,000 kids with our Water for Schools campaign since we started in 2017! I want to thank all our Friends of KiliTech for this amazing accomplishment. We raised over $10,000 during our Giving Tuesday fundraising event this past November and the funds were dedicated to build new toilets and improve sanitation and water distribution at Seliani Primary school, which has over 1,100 students between the ages of six and thirteen.

In October, 2018, at Seliani school a pit latrine collapsed with a student inside. It was a massive rescue effort to save the little boy, and thankfully he's back in school after a short stay in the hospital. We honored him during the grand opening of the new latrines and he is pictured below. He literally collapsed in my arms and I will always treasure this moment with Emmanuel (make sure you watch the heartwarming video of him).

Please enjoy the photos and videos of the work made possible through you. It is KiliTech's goal is to reach over ten-thousand kids by the end of 2020! I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your support, we know the world needs a lot of help and we are honored and proud that you have included KiliTech in your charity giving.
