The mission of Pure Thirst is to work with the Olkokola community in northern Tanzania in its effort to gain better access to clean water, while teaching students how to be agents of positive change in our world. Grounded in the Spiritan tradition, Pure Thirst embraces the building of authentic relationships while walking with those on the margins. Pure Thirst works with Spiritans, Duquesne faculty, and community leaders in Olkokola as they explore ways to increase water access and improve water quality.
Applications are now being accepted for the Pure Thirst trip to Tanzania 2020. The trip will run from mid-May (after graduation) to early June. Exact dates will be confirmed once the participants are chosen when plane tickets are purchased.
