We need a new drilling rig, preferably a blue one.

Global Resource Alliance's BlueRig Project

Our organization needs another drilling rig, and we’re asking you to make a small (or not so small) donation so we can buy one.

We have a really exciting water program in Tanzania, and with a second drilling rig we could double the number of people we help each year. Right now we provide clean, safe water for about 6,000 people each year.

Our drilling services are in demand in the region. We have a reputation for honesty and integrity and building quality wells… and because there are MILLIONS of people in Tanzania living with zero access to clean, safe water.

We are one of the only drilling outfits in the entire region with a permanent office and full-time, professional staff.

We're also one of the largest importers in all of Africa of the top quality BluePump hand-pump (it's made in Holland!). Our experienced technicians are available to service BluePumps in the region, and we have a complete inventory of spare parts on hand. This is really important, because wells are frequently abandoned in sub-Saharan Africa (40%) after a few years when all that’s needed is a simple repair.

We’re partnering with several international organizations like FairWater, Global Water and the UN Millennium Villages Project to be part of a long-term and sustainable global water effort. This means that your donation to the BlueRig Project, no matter how big or small, has legs.

Your donation will help us meet our immediate objective of purchasing new equipment. It will also bring all of us one step closer to a world where everyone’s basic needs are met, including the right to safe, clean water.

Fundraise for the BlueRig Project (Yes please!)

We would love for you to be a Razoo fundraiser for the BlueRig Project! Challenge yourself to think of creative ways to get people to give us money! Swim laps, run for a really longtime, Tweet jokes, write a great story, host a movie night with our award winning film From the Mara Soil!

We’re working on incentives to help you raise donations and are happy to support you in any way we can. Feel free to use our pics on your fundraising page. Just let us know if you need help.
