Our mission is to empower indigenous communities to embrace positive and sustainable developments in water, food and adult education whilst preserving their traditions and connection to nature.

Testigo Projects Inc, a not-for-profit incorporated association, was established by Tracey Sawyer in 2009 in response to a request from her Masai friends Olengunin and Namnyak Marle to bring clean running water into their village Longido, Tanzania.

We work at a grass roots level on long-term sustainable development projects that empower the communities in which they're undertaken and educate the world about their culture through project involvement, publications and documentary films.
