Wine To Water East Africa is headquartered in Tanzania, a country with diverse geography, including mountains in the North, rivers in the Midlands, active volcanoes, and the Great Rift Valley. Despite having abundant water resources, these resources are unevenly distributed across the country, and some regions experience water shortages.


According to the United Nations, over 40% of the Tanzanian population lacks access to clean water, which disproportionately affects women and girls who are the primary collectors of water every day. Women and girls spend a total of 16 million hours per day collectively collecting water across the country. Moreover, the World Health Organization estimates that diarrhea due to contaminated water is the fourth leading cause of death in Tanzania.


Wine to Water’s Tanzania office is making a positive impact in the region by working with multiple schools through our Water4Schools program, collaborating with a ceramic filter factory, and engaging with local teams towards community water systems like wells and aqueducts.


Access to clean and safe water has a significant impact on communities. It frees up time for women and children who would otherwise spend hours collecting water. With time freed up, women take more prominent roles in their communities, children focus on their education, and families engage in agriculture and other income-generating activities. Additionally, access to clean water reduces the incidence of waterborne illnesses, improving the overall health of communities.

Wells & Community Water Systems 

WTW drills boreholes and builds water systems to get water close to where people live.

This often includes:

  • Borehole or spring water harvest 

  • Reservoir tank + solar powered or electric water pump 

  • Pipelines

  • Tap stands or water kiosk stations

  • Water User Committees to design systems, manage water fees and maintenance 

With Improved water access, the health and prosperity of community increases.



Our Water4Schools program prioritizes boreholes, water systems, bathroom facilities, handwashing stations, and WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) education for students. 

Interactive education and improved water and sanitation infrastructure are vital in schools to lower incidence of waterborne illness, inform girls about menstrual hygiene, and connect good hygiene habits with good health.

Ceramic Filter Distribution

For communities that depend on contaminated water sources like ponds or rivers, filters can be life changing. 


The WTW Tanzania filter factory fabricates innovative clay filters that remove i purities and make water safe to drink. Every month, our team implements filters with important training and follow-up. 


Ceramic filters can last 5+ years with proper cleaning, and improve health by reducing waterborne illness.
