The „Rock House“ is an ecological House Project of a family located in Malimbe, a part of Mwanza next to the Lake Viktoria.
7 years ago the founder Ernest started to create a home for his family and the community. The vision is to be a real part of the ecosystem. That means to live in harmony with all the animals (Monkeys, hyraxes, lizards, hedgehogs, squirrels, birds, pigs, fishes, chicken, bee hives and quails) and plants (Indigenous trees, bananas, spinach, avocado and different other types of plants and fruit trees). The animals have a place of freedom on the area of the Rock House. They’re getting food and water possibilities.
The challenging point of the project is the water supply. At the community of 500 persons there is only one water pump. That’s not enough for a needful amount of water.
The solution is a second water pump. In order to finish what was started, we are in need for $5000. The estimated cost for the water pump is $2000, for the water tank $1500 and $1500 for the controller system. If the fundraising exceeds the expected goal, the rest will be used for a new fish pond and the material of bee hives.
So, if able, we’d kindly ask you for the support as we think that everybody should have a possibility to get water.
