HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM TMA

Happy Holidays! At this time of year we want to say THANK YOU for your generosity that allows us to continue working to improve the lives of so many.


We are excited to share our latest video on clean water by Go Kiss The Earth, starring our very own India- based team Jeanetta and Dewa Haley. This video demonstrates our five barrier approach to cleaning and storing water and will be used by our educational team for instructing villages and schools.
Our water filter project is expanding! And so are many of our other projects. Read on to find out all the ways we are serving life one person at a time.

 

Here sits our volunteer Jeanetta Haley with several young women applying for scholarships. Fortunately they all have a sense of humor and don the party hats Jeanetta pulls out this time of year. The woman on the left is the mother of two of the young ladies and is a graduate of our sewing class.

Education is the first step to change.

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." ~ Nelson Mandela

Education is the first step to change. We're taking that step. TMA's Clean Water Education course had 12 graduates this spring! These leaders will take their learning home and educate hundreds of families on how to prevent disease through proper water hygiene. It only takes a little education to go a long way!
Help us continue spreading the word.

TMA Launching Renewable Energy Project

The continuing escalation in demand for energy in rural India has serious consequences, especially in terms of air quality, resrouces, and access to energy. The need to ensure sustainable development requires not only combating climate change but also eradicating energy poverty and securing energy supply.

One part of the solution is use of solar-powered LED lanterns. These lanterns are expensive to purchase so TMA, partnering with Partners in Green Development (PGD), proposes establishing a fund to purchse the parts to manufacture the items locally. The enerprise, managed by a women's self-help group in Nimboli, Thane District, will provide work for youth in a culture where jobs are scarce.
