Many homes in the rural areas of Wanblee or on the reservation, also called the Rez,  do not have any sort of indoor plumbing, so families must resort to outhouses, as the majority do in slide one.  Through volunteers, the finished structure minimizes the risk of health concerns of sanitation caused by contamination and disease.

Homes with toxic black mold and other dangerous mold exposure is another major health concern.  FWT  provides information on mold remediation, removal, and clean-up.


In efforts to make Christmas a little brighter,  FWT sponsors a Community Parade Of Lights. Through donations to our organizations from generous providers we are able to provide the children of the reservation with gifts as well as fruit and cookies. The children look forward to this activity at the end of each year.

FWT also holds an Easter Egg Hunt with thousands of eggs hidden by our volunteers for children to find.

Throughout the year we either sponsor or help to sponsor and event for the children almost every month.  We are expecting this to grow bigger as the resources continue to be provided.
