The cyclone needs assessment is overwhelming. There were 281 confirmed deaths, over 600,000 people who need support and over 400,000 people are displaced. Our Zimbabwe working group has provided valuable input, guidance, cooperation and support and we “thank” our in-country team who has pledged their most valuable time for this mission. We have been in contact with the head of the Command Centre in Chimanimani and GSP donate filters for 20 families and one primary school. If you would like to donate to our working group in country, donate here and designate your donation to help with purchasing filters. If we can send money to rebuild a church — we can send money to help rebuild lives! No donation is too small! Thank you for your continued support! Big GSP Hug,

Global Sustainable Partnerships (GSP) – Helping to Build a Sustainable Future
Founded in Michigan in 2011, Global Sustainable Partnerships (GSP) has installed 580 Hydriad Biosand filters, which has brought access to clean and safe drinking water for over 60,000 students in primary and secondary schools, 200 households, 57 health dispensaries/clinics and a District hospital in the Meru and Karatu Districts in The United Republic of Tanzania — impacting over 250,000 people in 2016! The filters (which last for 8-10 years), closes the gap of re-contamination (in schools, households and health facilities) and also eliminates the need to burn unsustainably harvested wood to boil and purify the water, cut greenhouse gas emissions and indoor pollution. Community health, education, and social and environmental benefits, especially among women and girls, have improved significantly through our relatively easy initiatives that are taught, implemented and sustained within schools and the community at large. In addition, we have launched our hydroponic learning vegetable garden program, designed to emphasize nutrition education, sustainable organic agriculture and food safety in our schools – another tool essential to breaking the cycle of sickness and poverty.
