TurtleWill celebrated its 13th Anniversary in 2010
For the remote tribes of Niger, Mali and Ethiopia, TurtleWill's name means "Life."We are saving lives and centuries old cultures and traditions.
TurtleWill meets the people where they live, to enable them to live.
The TurtleWill name has become so well-known for saving lives and for promoting education and economic development that, when we are in Africa, delegations of tribal chiefs travel 20 to 30 miles by foot, donkey and camel to ask for TurtleWill's help.
Here's what we've accomplished in 13 Years!!!Over 84,000 patients treated and countless lives saved in our Mobile Clinics.
Since 2002 TurtleWill’s Mobile Medical Clinics have saved lives, reduced child and maternal mortality and the ravaging effects of malaria in remote regions where there is little or no other access to health care.
54 deep clean water wells dug or rehabilitated.
Clean water wells help prevent disease and keep people and animals alive in droughts. Our wells impact the lives of over 20,000 people.
2400 nomadic children in 37 remote primary schools received support.
TurtleWill provides classrooms, dormitories, latrines, meals, teachers, school supplies. Without TurtleWill’s support, education for these tribal children would not be possible.
33 tribal students on scholarships for secondary and higher education funded.
TurtleWill provides the only possibility for many to go beyond primary school.
104 food, sewing and handicraft cooperatives funded.
TurtleWill teaches income-producing skills that generate independence and self-empowerment, particularly for women.
