Jambo! Karibu sana!
Maji Hope began in 2009 with a small group of people who wanted to do something to help others. When they learned that 80% of the illnesses in developing countries were caused by unclean drinking water and that a staggering 4000 children die everyday from lack of clean water, they decided to do something to change that. After becoming a 501c3 non profit in 2010, they began partnering with rural villages in Tanzania to create clean water projects. “Maji” (m-ah-j-ee) means water in Swahili, which is the main language in the areas they serve. The name is fitting because “water” brings “hope.”
