E.P.I.C. would not be able to operate if it weren't for the team on-the-ground in Africa. On their first trip to Tanzania, Tennille and Alexi stayed with a local family who have now become an extended family to the girls. They feel passionately about helping the people in their country gain their basic needs for survival, and help E.P.I.C. in every way that they can in order to fulfill this mission. They also provide limitless knowledge that only a local could know, in order to ensure that the drilling of each well is done in the most cost-efficient, effective, and sustainable way.
