Tigray Region, Ethiopia


about this project

The proceeds from the 2015 Amsterdam Coffee Festival allowed Project Waterfall to continue our work in Ethiopia through a partnership with charity: water.

the solution

Project Waterfall funded the construction of two hand-dug wells in the Tigray region, which will bring clean water to two communities in their entirety.  The wells will be built by community members, a process which helps the community to take ownership of their water source and come together around a common goal.


the future

The project is estimated to be completed in 2017 and will serve 404 people.  Contact The Allegra Foundation for opportunities to get involved and support projects like this one.
