We asked for help many times over, but we received none – until today! Because of you, we have received grace in our village.

Finally, a new well was installed in our community! Thank you for providing us with this safe water. We will no longer walk long distances hunting for water from hand dug wells and dams.

Aminata - Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Sierra Leone

We used to collect water from an open stream and the water was so dirty–it was not desirable for us to use. We only had to use the water because we did not have any choice. Now we thank God that we have clean and safe water within easy reach from our houses.

Emmanuel - Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Rwanda

We would have to go down to the stream to get water and it was visibly unclean. There were many activities happening upstream and we were downstream fetching the same water. It will be so different with this new well.

Akankwasa - Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Uganda

Our previous water source, a hand dug pond, had dirty water and would dry up during the dry season. Consequently, we were walking long distances hunting for water. My wife and young children have been relieved from the burden of walking long distances hunting for insecure water.

Ms. Twimukye - Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Uganda

We are grateful for the well in our village. Before, we solely depended on hand dug wells owned by an individual and he would sometimes chase us away to preserve water for his animals.

I am very glad for the new pump. This well has given us a lot of good use, but when the pump isn’t functioning properly, we have to go to the waterside. This will help us a lot. Thank you very much!

Esther - Nurse, discussing her newly donated water project in Uganda


For the past six years, as a practicing nurse in this community, I have been treating many community members for sanitation and water related diseases – mainly typhoid, dysentery and diarrhea. This I largely attribute to unsafe water sources... We thank you for this new well. This will go a long way in reducing the disease prevalence among the people in this community!

Help Fund a Water Project

Donate a fresh water well to a third world country
  1. Through your support we invest in proven partners who are drilling fresh water wells, providing sanitation and hygiene training and constructing other sustainable water projects.

  2. We show every donor the specific impact of their gifts through photos, short stories and GPS map coordinates of every project.

  3. We follow up, monitor and evaluate the projects you support to help ensure our shared work has a long-term impact.

We believe that every supporter can be part of the story of water by learning, acting, giving and then seeing the difference they make.

We're looking for willing hands...are you ready?
