‘WASH’ IS SHORT FOR ‘WATER, SANITATION AND HYGIENE’
MAJI SAFI GROUP: HANDS SHOULD CARRY DREAMS, NOT DISEASE
In the Mara Region of rural Tanzania where 99 percent of the water is contaminated, Maji Safi Group has saved lives and helped more than 365,000 people learn safe water, sanitation and hygiene practices. MSG uses creative education, primarily female community health educators and art, song, and dance to inspire people to bring these lifesaving practices into their daily routines. We imagine a world where children are able to reach their full academic potential because they grow up in healthy families that know how to prevent diseases.

Every day in Tanzania, about 270 children under the age of five die from largely preventable and treatable illnesses, such as chronic diarrhea from contaminated water and improper sanitation. A tipping point is at hand. Help us reverse this public health crisis!
We have already reached 365,000 in over 100 villages and teach more than 300 people a day. You can be part of the change.
