About us!

We are Amisadai and Louisa Monger (aged 12 and 10). In 2010, we moved to Tanzania in Africa - look at the map below to see if you can find it! We hope you will enjoy reading about our adventures and looking at our photos! Please don't forget to send us a message too!

Launching the SODIS Shake and Water Walk

We are starting our sponsored SODIS Shake and Water Walk Fundraiser!

Follow the link and see our new website www.mongergirlswaterworks.webs.com

We are going to a sponsored SODIS shake (where we will shake 100L of water) and do a sponsored water walk, the distance that people in the villages here walk (an average) to get water.

Go to our website and you can find out all about why we are raising money and how we plan to do it. You can find out all about water and sanitation which we have been learning about at school, how to treat water with the SODIS method and watch our videos on how to make a tippy tap and do sodis!

Please think about sponsoring us for the SODIS Shake and the Water Walk. You can donate safely and securely here with CharityCheckout.

And you can think about doing your own fundraiser as well! March 22nd is World Water Day, so that would be a great day to organize a fun sponsored event to help us raise the money! We really need your help because it is hard to raise money by ourselves here!

SODIS treating our water
Making our Tippy Tap
We are going to split the money we raise between two important things. One is for the medical clinics on the islands and the other is a project vehicle. We are fundraising to help Dr Makori's medical clinic work on the islands on Lake Victoria. Dr Makori needs money to get medical supplies and equipment for his mobile clinics. A mobile clinic is one that travels around to lots of people, in distant villages. He also has a base clinic. He need things like an x-ray machine and an ultrasound. He is raising money to run a big mobile medical camp which he hopes to start in the summer. (He needs $12 000 or £7000 for this). This camp will give medical care but also lots of health education; and one important thing he will teach about is the importance of water and sanitation.

We are also fundraising for a Land Cruiser that we can use for our projects. The roads are very rough here and it is hard to get to far-away villages. We want to be able to go to villages on the big islands (that we can get to by ferry) and also to villages on the mainland. Then we will be able to help more people with health projects and other things as well. It will cost about $50,000 (£30,000) with shipping etc. So we do need lots of help!
So please think about if you can help us in any way! And please share this with your friends! Thank you very much!

  1. Amisadai and Louisa what a fantastic thing to do. I have put the date in our diary (for World Water Day) and I think - if I can get organised - we will endeavour to raise some money for your SODIS Shake and Waterwalk Fundraiser.
    At the very least we will sponsor you, but I hope we can get ourselves into action to do a bit more. It's night time here so the boys have gone to bed, but I'll be showing them your site, including your brilliant video tomorrow.
    Bless you and Love,
    Ellen Braithwaite
