Al-Ansari Foundation

Welcome to the Al-Ansari Foundation

We are a UK registered charity working in Africa since 2010. We are dedicated to helping children fulfil their potential and we strive to empower them with choices in life. Through your donations & support we have improved the lives of hundreds of children in Africa. We are currently working on various projects in in rural villages along the west coast of Zanzibar, Tanzania. 


Water For Life Appeal 2017

Water is a fundamental source of wealth for it gives life to the living. However, in countries like Africa drinking water is a rare resource. Zanzibar is surrounded by salty water, and so fresh water is a priceless commodity and securing fresh drinking water is an enormous challenge. We have been building hand-dug wells for the past 4 years in Zanzibar and now have 40 wells across the island, providing water to some 13,000 people a day.

This Ramadan we launched what is perhaps one of the most important appeals since we began working in Zanzibar as it will help make life tenable for the poor, who suffer from chronic water shortages and are forced to walk for miles every day in search of fresh drinking water. We need to double our efforts and bring the cost of drilling down and increase our capacity to build more wells to promote access to water to people in remote locations accross Zanzibar and its neighbouring islands.

We are therefore fundraising this year for £40,000 to buy a trailer-mounted, compact hydraulic drilling rig (PAT-Drill 301T), which is designed to dig in difficult rocky terrains like Zanzibar, where the entire island has a coral reef base.  A water drilling machine will enable us to drill a well every 2 weeks and reduce our labour costs significantly. Join us in our appeal and help us meet our target.
