Project Phases on The Dark Continent

This photo from outer space shows Europe and Africa at night. While people in the United States and Europe take electricity for granted, that is not so in Africa. Why?? Because, as this photo shows there is no electrical power grid or power generation facilities for 99+% of  the African continent......... it is in the dark at night.

The small star on the map shows the location of the Central African Republic. There is no electricity, period~!!


            It truly is The Dark Continent

                                            Phases of Operation


Phase I---Completed April 2017

I volunteered for Ecofaune in the following capacities:

  • I spent nearly a month in the CAR, half of that time deep in lawless terrorist held territory in the northern part of the CAR on a wildlife survey and counter poaching operation

  • I assisted Ecofaune in hiring 12 Rangers from the northern region of CAR

  • I marked out a 1,500 foot long airstrip for Ecofaune.

  • I facilitated for Ecofaune to hire villagers fro Idongo to build the airstrip, and to refurbish an old Professional Hunters camp to use as their new Forward Operating Base

  • Opened up some of the old tracks

  • Reestablished mineral licks to bring animals back to the area


Phase II—Completed May 2020

  • Completed the custom build of a new Piper PA-18 Super cub.(My wife and paid for 90+% of the build out of our own funds)


 Phase III--- As Soon As Funds Become Available

  • Build an Orphans Home near the capital City of Bangui

    • Starting capacity will be 50 children with provision for immediate expansion

    • There are an estimated 1,000+ orphans living on the streets of the capital city, Bangui, at this time.  AWI will invite these children for the orphan’s home.  

    • Total funds needed for Phase III, to build and operate the orphan’s home for one year: $750,000

  • AWI’s has a new Piper PA-18 Super Cub that we will use in this mission.

    • Search & Rescue

    • Aerial Reconnaissance

    • Resupplying the Ranger Forward Operating Base

    • Wildlife Surveys

    • Transporting rescued children to a children's home (a four hour flight or a five day drive through lawless terrorist held territory with zero chance of making it)

  • Conduct Counter Poaching and Child Rescue Operations

  • Provide medical assistance to local villagers including emergency MEDIVAC with the Super Cub to the nearest hospital in Bangui.

Phase V---Starting November 2025--and continuing forward


  • Water Well Drilling Program

    • Purchase a cable tool water well drilling rig, mounted on a 6x6 truck, in the USA and ship it, along with a support truck, to Doula, Cameroon where they will be driven 1,500 miles to AWI’s Area of Operation (AO) in the Central African Republic 

    • Implement a water well drilling program in AWI’s AO which will include teaching local villagers about good hygiene and proper sanitation to help avoid diseases, and how to operate the drill rig

    • Starting with the 10 villages in the immediate AO, drill water wells and install hand-operated well pumps.  The goal is to drill seven (7) water wells a year and install hand pumps

    • Expand this drilling program to other villages in the region
