We work with the help of volunteers and generous donors. Thanks to their help we have been able to achieve the completion of multiple projects. From building a school and a rain harvest system; to humanitarian relief in disasters and launching different income generating projects, these initiatives have had an impact in the lives of people in Simanjiro, Northern Tanzania, Nepal as well as school outreach programs in the US.
MONDULI WATER RESERVOIR
This project directly improved the lives of 8,000 people and their daily plight of obtaining water for survival. We engaged our youngest friends in elementary schools across Tennessee to aid in funding and constructing a water reservoir in the Monduli district Monduli Water Project in 2013.
Pennies were collected, volunteer work was done and money was donated, all in efforts to do something bigger than ourselves.
HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF
During natural disasters, BeSomeOne seeks to help in ways large and small. When in 2012, Hurricane Sandy devastated parts of the Atlantic coast, the BSO team gathered several tractor trailers of relief supplies. With the help of many volunteers and donors, BSO was able to deliver much needed fresh water, blankets, cleaning equipment and other items to those with the most critical needs.
NAMELOK SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION
As our second volunteer trip, human beings from around the globe including New York, Boston, DC, and Mexico, came together in 2014 to offer their skills and their fundraising powers to construct a 4 class school building in Terrat, Tanzania.
Volunteers worked alongside Maasai warriors and we learned that hard work and laughter transcends any cultural barrier.
RAIN HARVEST SYSTEM
In 2016, University of Texas MBA program got their hands dirty to combine humanitarianism with strengthening their business knowledge. Partnering up with Building Bridges Worldwide, we focused on the dire need of a rainwater system and completed construction on a kitchen for the school. Our new water system will capture rain throughout the wet season and provide 35,000 liters of recycled water to get our school through the drought months.
NEPAL EARTHQUAKE RELIEF
When a devastating earthquake struck Nepal in April 2015, BSO was quick to mobilize. With multiple fundraisers in New York and Pennsylvania, BSO was able to be on the ground in Nepal within weeks. Working with both Building Bridges Worldwide, and local guides, Ashley was able to deliver vital supplies and much needed support to the remote village of Gerkhu, an area hard hit by this natural disaster.
