Zachary Lager, Access to Water and Community Reforestation Project (2015 Impact Grant)
Zachary Lager has lived in Mozambique for the past 5 years. Working alongside community members, he identified lack of access to clean water and deforestation as two major issues facing the community. His organization LCDN focuses on a two-pronged approach of drilling boreholes and then using them to cultivate tree nurseries. With two boreholes drilled, and over 1000 trees planted, Zach is ready to move onto the next phase of the project. Funds from this impact grant will help empower a team of local people to drill more boreholes for the community by providing them with the training and equipment necessary to take ownership of this normally expensive process.
