Help One Family

Super MoneyMaker Pump

Your gift will provide a KickStart Super MoneyMaker Pump for one family, lifting them out of poverty. What does "out of poverty" look like? It means a family has enough food to eat, decent clothes and shelter, enough money to send their children to school and still have money left over to invest in the future. That's what KickStart creates.
