Folks, did you know there is a WorldToiletDay? November 19, 2022!

Check out this video of Jen doing a walkthrough one of the long drop latrine in Zimbabwe....the type we are building in the Matopos region of that country. Each costs $200 and comes complete with a solar lamp so people feel safe walking to their latrine at night.

Kumusha Wines (www.kumushabrands.com) has joined the party and we'll start building the first five latrines sponsored by them very soon. We'd love it if you come along and join the party, too, making a donation that can change a family's life for a long time into the future. You can make a donation now, knowing Facebook will give us 100% of your donation.
