Bring attention to children across the world suffering from the repercussions of climate change and water insecurity
Learn, Engage, Act
Join us in raising $250K to begin a new borehole construction project in a brand new village. The well will be named the “Water is Education” borehole, in order to emphasize the impact water has on whether or not a child can get an education.
Access to water can be the determining factor on whether or not a child will be able to get an education.
An easily accessible clean water source will allow:
- 25,000 people (and animals) to gain year-round access to water
- 10,000 women and children to benefit from our Mobile Health Clinic
- 400 women to engage in skills-training through community cooperatives
- as many as 5000 children to attend school
In order to feature students as leaders, and build relationship between students in America, Europe, and Niger, we would like this borehole to be mostly funded by the students, themselves. Our Wells of Love program is reaching numerous schools and students who have jumped on board to spread the word and donate to this beautiful cause. We invite you to support the “Water is Education” borehole by initiating a campaign at your school.
Below are some events being held by schools. We invite you to start your own campaign:
