Welcome to the Project 117 Blog/Website!


Welcome to the all new Project 117 blog/website. Until we can get a proper website into place this will serve as our blog and website. I can humbly admit that I am not in anyway a website genius so this is in no way going to look like an outstanding website. But for now this is what it is. :) 

Just as a quick introduction to who we are. We are a non-profit corporation located in Nashville, TN. We focus on clean water, health, hygiene, and sanitation. The ultimate goal of what we do is to get people healthy enough to return to work so they can provide an income for themselves and their families. We work any where in the world we feel God is leading us to work. The goal is to prevent anymore orphans due to financial situations. I personally have witnessed many orphans in Ethiopia because their families could not financially afford to keep them. We believe this should never be the case and we want to do whatever we can to prevent this. We believe getting people healthy enough to work, go to school, or receive a training in a trade will allow them to provide for themselves and their families and prevent this from occurring. We partner with other wonderful organizations who help us accomplish our goals. 

Right now we have a trip coming up in May with one of our partner organizations, One Child Campaign, to provide clean water solution at some of their project locations throughout Ethiopia. They provide Compassion and Justice for the Orphan and are an amazing organization to work with. We cannot wait to get to Ethiopia with them in May and install some water purification systems. I will go into more detail at another time what water purification system is and how we go about installing them.
